The Great British Bake Off (GBBO) made big waves when news broke that the 2017 series would be shown on Channel 4 instead of BBC.
The first episode of the Great British Bake OfF 2017 proved to be one of the biggest audiences in Channel 4’s 35-year history, new figures show. Full ratings, which includes those who watched the show up to seven days later, ended up at 9.5 million viewers.
In taking the Great BritishBake Off from the BBC, Channel 4 had to ensure they retained excellent plots and characters. The former they could largely leave to Love Productions, the independent company which achieved such success with the format on the BBC. The latter was a trickier mission. But the near universal acclaim – among critics at least – for the combination of Noel Fielding, Sandi Toksvig and Prue Leith with Paul Hollywood suggests that they’ve scored on this front as well.
GBBO (Great British Bake Off) was initially presented by Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins, with cookery writer Mary Berry joining Hollywood as co-judge, but the trio decided to part ways with the Bake Off following its move from BBC One to Channel 4 in 2017.
Many “Bake Off” participants, including winners, have gone on to start a career based on bakery. In chronological order, the winners are Edd Kimber, Joanne Wheatley, John Whaite, Frances Quinn, Nancy Birtwhistle, Nadiya Hussain and Candice Brown.
