A History of The Great British Bake Off

The BBC lost a prize asset in The Great British Bake Off when it moved channels in 2017.

The producer of the series Love Productions could not reach an agreement with the BBC and GBBO moved to Channel 4. 

Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc were the original presenters of the Great British Bake Off but neither followed the show when it moved to Channel 4.

The reaction was mixed with some considering the BBC a natural home for this type of "folksy" series.

However, despite the annoying advertising breaks, Channel 4 seems to have breathed new life into the show. 

Great British Bake Off Worldwide

The Great British Bake Off has been watched by people all over the world with the programme having been sold to over 200 countries.

The Extra Slice is especially worth a look with the comedian Jo Brand revealing all the Bake Off tent gossip.
