Sue Perkins sobs in last EVER Great British Bake Off on the BBC


Sue Perkins has admitted to shedding a few tears after completing her final ever Great British Bake Off episode.

The Great British Bake Off's final series may be over on BBC One but there is still a little more from the show to come.

October saw the Great British Bake Off 2016 winner crowned in a tense final, as the last ever BBC series concluded.

However there will still be two festive specials airing later this month before Channel 4 take over for good.

Mary, Paul, Mel and Sue will be back for one VERY LAST time together as they get into the festive spirit with The Great Christmas Bake Off.

Sue tweeted today: "Not ashamed to admit I just shed a tear at my final ever Bake Off voice over. Farewell my tenty chum x"

In each episode of the Xmas Bake Off, Sue and co-host Mel welcome back four bakers from the past series and ask them to don their Christmas jumpers and aprons to tackle three festive challenges.

The presenters announced their exits from the main show earlier this year when Channel 4 took over.

They said in a statement at the time: “The BBC nurtured the show from its infancy and helped give it its distinctive warmth and charm, growing it from an audience of two million to nearly 15 at its peak.”

“We’re not going with the dough. We wish all the future bakers every success," Mel and Sue added.

The first Christmas bake off episode will be broadcast at 4.45PM on BBC One on Christmas Day.

The show is then repeated at 11:30AM on Boxing Day ahead of the second new episode at 7PM later that evening.

The Great British Bake Off will move to Channel 4 next year in a new three-year-deal.
