The Great British Bake Off

Meet the New 'Great British Bake-Off ' Presenters!

Attention, Great British Bake-Off fans! If you’re like me you have been apprehensive about who will take the place of our beloved baking show gals, Mary Berry, Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc. You may even have sworn off the show all together for pulling up stakes at the BBC and going to the highest bidder, Channel 4. Well, this afternoon the show's officials finally announced their relaunch line-up. The new presenters have been revealed to be Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding! Read on to find out more about these new additions to the Bake Off roster and why they may not be as ill-suited as you might think.

'The Great British Baking Show' Returns to PBS This Fall!

Get excited, America – it’s time to start baking again! Another season of The Great British Bake Offor The Great British Baking Show, as it’s known here in the US - will kick off on Sunday, September 6.

For our lucky friends in the UK the latest season of Bake Off actually got under way last week. It’s technically their sixth season – the one we aired earlier this year was their fifth. However, you should know that the season PBS stations are about to air is not this latest effort – it’s definitely a bit confusing, but because since we’ve only aired a season of the cooking competition thus far, basically everything is new to us. Hence, it’s a new season! But, not the newest season, if that makes sense. (It just means we have more to get through in the end, is how I’m looking at it.)

Anyway, so here’s the deal: PBS will be broadcasting what aired as the fourth season of Bake Off in England– and calling it “Season 2” here in the States. Feeling confused? I hear you. But, luckily, we’re Anglophiles, so we’re used to the occasionally strange labeling tactics that get used when programs cross the pond. (Looking at you: Inspector Lewis and Foyle’s War.)
