Trivia

In September 2016, midway through the show's seventh series, it was announced that this series would be the last to air on the BBC. Apparently, a rival broadcaster, Channel 4, had "poached" the series. The day after the announcement, Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins both announced that they were not in agreement with the move to Channel 4 and would be stepping down. See more »

An excellent show; far better than the 'destructive commentary' shows...
20 March 2016 | by patrick-d-croweSee all my reviews

I've loved most of the British shows that have made it across the water, and this one is exceptional! I love that they don't have disguised 'professional' bakers, just people who love this as a hobby; they do this as a true 'labor of love'!

Another aspect is the judging. They don't hide catty commentary or mean-spirited comebacks in the 'helpful' comments they give, they're honestly decent in their feedback and don't make 'authoritarian' statements such as 'this is wrong' when it comes to the taste of an item. Rather, they might say 'I'm not as keen on (whatever), but the design is lovely'.

Such a nice diversion from the 'reality' food shows in America! Pay attention Food Network execs!!
