The Great British Sewing Bee 2019

Joe Lycett makes his debut in the first trailer for the long-awaited Great British Sewing Bee 2019, and it’s enough to make you feel warm and fuzzy inside.


After a long hiatus, the Sewing Bee is back for the first time since 2016, with comedian Lycett taking over presenting duties from Claudia Winkleman.

Set to the tune of Curtis Mayfield’s Move On Up, the trailer shows him having a great time with the ten amateur sewers alongside returning judges Patrick Grant and Esme Young.


An air date has yet to be confirmed, but Lycett promises it is “not long now friends” until the Sewing Bee returns to BBC2.
