It’s official – The Great British Sewing Bee is returning to BBC2, and comedian Joe Lycett is set to replace Claudia Winkleman as the show’s presenter.
The future of the Love Productions show – which last aired in 2016 – was thrown into uncertainty after Love’s decision to move The Great British Bake Off to Channel 4.
Sewing Bee was off air in 2017, but now the series is set to be revived on BBC2. While the show has yet to be formally recommissioned, Broadcast has confirmed that Sewing Bee is set go into production shortly.
