Will The Great British Bake Off get a new name on Channel 4?

It's all change on The Great British Bake Off when it moves to Channel 4 next year.

We already know that the current series will be the last on BBC One ahead of a channel switch in 2017.

And there will be some big changes as hosts Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins as well as judge Mary Berry depart.

But could we see a brand new name for the show?

2013 Bake Off champion Frances Quinn reckons so, saying that the series will be so different on Channel 4 it won't be the same programme.

She told the Radio Times this week: “Now it’s going to Channel 4, I honestly don’t think it can really be called The Great British Bake Off, can it?”

She suggested: "So many ingredients are missing, it's like making a loaf of bread and calling it a cake.”

Bake Off's move to Channel 4 hasn't gone down well with many fans of the show, some of them even branding Paul Hollywood a "traitor" for deciding to follow the series to its new home.

But this week he defended the move and said he 'couldn't walk away' from the show.

Paul told the Daily Mirror: "I’m still doing what I’ve always done. I think for me, when they picked me to do the job seven years ago, I was really shocked that I was given the chance.

"I just couldn’t walk away from my job. I love evangelising about baking and passing the word on and I will carry on doing that."

The Great British Bake Off continues its final series on BBC One Wednesday nights at 8PM.
