Sandi Toksvig is leaving The Great British Bake Off after three years as a presenter. The 61-year-old said that she wants to leave the Bake Off tent to focus on other work projects. Toksvig, who hosts the baking programme alongside Noel Fielding, said: “When stepping down from a job, it is quite common for people to say they are doing so in order to spend more time with their family. “Unusually I am departing from The Great British Bake Off so I can spend more time with my other work. As my waistline will testify, Bake Off is an all-consuming show.
