Comic Jo Brand adding extra slice to Bake Off series
Comedian Jo Brand will join the next series of The Great British Bake Off as she brings back her spin-off programme, The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice.
Formerly a BBC Two production, the new run will move to Channel 4 along with the main baking show when it returns for its eighth series.
Brand will welcome a fresh host of celebrity guests to discuss the show's latest episodes, as well as each contestant to leave the tent as the competition progresses.
She will also invite her audience to bring in their own baked items.
The next Bake Off series will include long-standing TV baker Paul Hollywood as judge, while Prue Leith replaces Mary Berry and Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding take over from rib-tickling presenters Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc.
