Why isn't Sue on the Great British Bake Off?

Sue Perkins is missing from tonight's episode of The Great British Bake Off 2016 but where is she?

In tonight's GBBO, Mel Giedroyc is going it alone as she presents biscuit week on her own.

The comedy duo are considered part of the reason behind the show's huge ratings success, with their saucy innuendos making them as popular with viewers as judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood.

However, Mel was left to fly solo for the second week of the latest series - marking the first time ever that Bake Off has been fronted by just one host.

Sadly, it's understood that the reason why Sue isn't on the Bake Off tonight is due to a tragic bereavement at the time of filming earlier this year.

While she won't be in the tent with Mel, Sue will appear in the pre-recorded baking history segment, and has contributed voiceovers, which are recorded after filming.

And the BBC have confirmed that she will rejoin the team for next week's instalment.

In the opening scenes of tomorrow's episode, Mel says: "Welcome to week two in the Bake Off tent. One baker has gone, they’re not coming back. Sue’s also gone, but she will be back."

On the Great British Bake Off tonight the bakers will be tackling biscuits, with the Showstopper challenge apparently involving some of the show's largest gingerbread structures ever.

The Great British Bake Off airs at 8PM tonight on BBC One.
