Prue Leith, Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding are to join Paul Hollywood in the line-up for Great British Bake Off when it launches on Channel 4 later this year.

Restaurateur and food writer Prue Leith will join Hollywood as judge, replacing Mary Berry.

Toksvig and Fielding will present, replacing Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins.

Channel 4 Chief Creative Officer Jay Hunt said “The Great British Bake Off will have a uniquely Channel 4 take when it airs this autumn. Paul and Prue have huge amounts of expertise and warmth. I’m looking forward to seeing them putting our great new bunch of amateur bakers through their paces. Sandi and Noel bring a fresh wit and quirkiness to the tent. It’s just the sort of innovative lineup audiences expect from Channel 4.”

Creator and Executive Producer for Love Productions Richard McKerrow said “We are honoured to have the esteemed Prue Leith join Paul as judge on GBBO and know that Sandi and Noel will bring plenty of fun and warmth to the tent. We cannot wait for them to meet our new batch of bakers. On your marks, get set, BAKE!”

The Great British Bake Off is produced by Love Productions.
