Ex Bake Off hosts Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins are 'working on a sitcom'

The Great British Bake Off hosts Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins

Former Great British Bake Off hosts Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins are reportedly working on their own sitcom.

The comedy duo left Bake Off last year following its move to Channel 4, staying loyal to the BBC.

And that loyalty could well be rewarded with work said to be underway on a show just for the pair.

A 'BBC insider' told The Sun newspaper: “The series is very much in the development stage. At this point it’s likely they’ll star in it too.

“Making their own sitcom was something they’ve always wanted to do.”

While the sitcom idea remains in the works, it has been confirmed that Mel & Sue will host a new four episode series of The Generation Game.

This classic show will combine elements everyone knows and loves from the original series, whilst being brought up to date with a hilarious selection of brand new games and challenges for families of all ages to play in studio and enjoy watching at home.

Pairs of family members across generations will battle it out in a series of fun performance and task based games with the ultimate goal of facing the legendary conveyor belt, and taking home an array of fabulous prizes.

All the family pairs will start the show in the studio audience and only find out which game they’re playing when Mel and Sue get them from their seats. There’s no time for rehearsals in this gameshow, so anything could happen on the night.

Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins said: “It’s a cuddly toy, it’s a toaster, it’s a circular power saw, no it’s MEL AND SUE DOING THE GENERATION GAME! We can’t believe it, we are so excited!”

The series will air on BBC later this year.
