Kirstie Allsopp and others respond to The Great British Bake Off leaving the BBC

By  | 

The Great British Bake Off will be hosted on Channel 4, it’s been confirmed.

The BBC said they would have loved to have kept the show but added they were “a considerable distance apart on the money”.

Location, Location, Location presenter Kirstie Allsopp has aired her views on Twitter, saying it is not “a smart move”.

Bake Off shift shows a disgraceful lack of gratitude from the producers to the BBC who commissioned it in the first place, not a smart move.

She then added later:

If my Twitter feed is anything to go by @LoveProdHouse would be mad not to re-think. #KeepBakeoffatBeeb https://t.co/qGU0FrkqaQ

So far, none of the presenters or judges have commented, but Sue Perkins did re-tweet the statement the BBC released.

She’s not the only person to have their say on the news.

Here is what celebrities and fans are saying:

Bake-off on ITV is just wrong. Like putting the Archers on TalkSport

A Marvel makeover for Mary Berry?

I didnt watch it before..The only way I'd watch now is if Netflix got it and gave it a Marvel makeover with Mary Berry wearing a cape #GBBO

Cue The Beatles lyrics: ‘We can work it out…’

Dear @LoveProdHouse can't we work this out? After all we've been through? Baked Alaskagate, Custard wars and the amazing Nadia #GBBO

Fans will still get their Bake Off fix next year though as Channel 4 has confirmed the first instalment will be a celebrity version of the show, in aid of Stand Up To Cancer.
