Love Productions and the BBC couldn’t come to a financial agreement about the show’s future, so the Bake Off makers cooked up a thee-year deal with Channel 4 instead.

But what do the show’s beloved viewers think about the move?


 Will you still watch GBBO on Channel 4?


Well, it’s safe to say they’re not entirely happy – for a variety of reasons.

Viewers are fiercely protective of the Bake Off format and many firmly believe it just won’t fit on its new channel.

However, others believe that of all the commercial broadcasters, Channel 4 is Bake Off’s best option.

For the majority, it seems as though adverts and the impact they’ll have on the show’s format are the main concern.

Many have tips and tricks for avoiding sitting through ads, but viewers believe it’ll have a negative impact on the way they watch the series.

Some say it could stop them watching the series.

Though others admit that their threats may be ever so slightly empty…

One question that many are asking is whether Paul Hollywood, Mary Berry, Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc will move with the show.

In July, Hollywood said he’d prefer to see the show stay with the BBC, and it seems as though many viewers will only watch if the presenters and judges stay with the series.

Some viewers say they’d happily still watch the show on Channel 4 if absolutely nothing about it changed.

It seems as though others aren’t opposed to a little change, though.

Many GBBO lovers and TV viewers alike are quite disappointed that the BBC didn’t fight harder during negotiations to hold on to the series.

Others are just sitting tight and waiting to see what Channel 4’s Bake Off will bring – they’re happy to follow the show no matter where it goes.

And just hoping beyond hope that they won’t have to wait until 2018 to see another series.
