Did You Know?


The show did not return in 2017 prompting much speculation that it had been caught up in the fallout from the disagreement between production company Love Productions and the British Broadcasting Corporation that followed on from The Great British Bake Off's move to Channel 4. However, on 20th April 2018 the BBC announced that they had commissioned a fifth series of The Great British Sewing Bee but that it would not return until 2019 and that comedian Joe Lycett would replace Claudia Winkleman as host.

Not what it used to Bee
13 March 2019 | by adrienne-holmesSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed this show when it first started. But the rot set in when they lost May Martin. I could never take to Esme. The latest series with Joe Lycett presenting is just awful. I can't bel how I'm wishing they would bring back the annoying Claudia Winkleman.

It's such a shame. I'm a fan of Joe Lycett, I like his humour but absolutely hate him in this show.

It's so disappointing. I've deleted the schedule to record from my planner.

Sorry GBSB it's 🐝n nice knowing you but you're a has 🐝n now
