Instead, the next season of ‘The Great British Bake Off‘ will air on Channel 4, who have earned the righted to show it.
The first Channel 4 “Bake Off” episode will be a celebrity version of the show and will air next year. The network is reported to have outbid the BBC.
The latest season of the show shown to be the U.K.’s most-watched show last year, with over 15 million viewers for its finale. It has proved more popular than the network’s coverage of the Olympics this year, with the curtain-raiser for the latest season, the seventh, pulling almost half of all U.K. viewers. Impressive.
