Apprentice boss Lord Sugar is fired up at Bake Off move

By Julia Hunt

Lord Sugar believes The Great British Bake Off will be "a total disaster" following its move from the BBC to Channel 4.

The Apprentice star said he feels for the corporation after the baking show's production company, Love Productions, controversially sold the rights, and he suggested ratings could drop.

He told Radio Times: "I think it's going to be a total disaster.

"I think they (the BBC) are getting a raw deal these days.

"I mean, because they make something successful like Bake Off or The Voice, then suddenly a commercial channel comes along and just goes and buys it off them, and greedy production companies sell it to them. I don't find that morally correct."
