The nation's hearts were broken when Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins confirmed they were leaving GBBO.
The hilarious presenting duo decided to part ways with everyone’s favourite baking show after it was sold to Channel 4 in 2017, with Mary Berry also waving goodbye to the show.
And, when Jonathan Ross asked Mel if she had any regrets over her decision on his namesake ITV chat show on Saturday, it’s clear Mel stood by her choice, with the star replying, “Not at all!”
Clearly Mel isn’t keen to catch up with the latest goings on inside the famous white tent, as when Jonathan asked if she’d watched any of the current series her answer was surprising.
“No I haven’t [watched it]. I feel bad!” she confessed.
Channel 4’s decision to buy Great British Bake Off for £75 million (for three years) caused huge upset among fans because national treasure judge, Mary Berry, announced she’d be stepping down from her role as judge. She was replaced by Prue Leith.
Paul Hollywood was the only person from the original GBBO team to make the move to Channel 4. And, it seems as though things are working out fine for him and fellow judge Prue, and presenters Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding, as fans are still just as invested in the baking show as previous years.
However, the show came under fire recently when fans were left upset about the fact the first episode of the series was all about biscuits instead of cake.
“Starting with biscuits and not cakes? Just when you thought 2018 couldn’t get any worse, such a shocking turn of events
#GBBO”, one fan wrote.
While another said, “We’re kicking off with biscuits and not cakes this year!” I can’t handle all this controversy
A third person added, “I’m just not sure how I feel about episode 1 being biscuit week rather than cake week…
And another user commented, “Why have we changed the first week to biscuit week and not cake week?! I’m even more disgusted than I was last year
