Paul Hollywood

The new Great British Bake Off has continued to attract controversy ever since the news that the iconic baking show was making the move from the BBC to Channel 4. The new presenting line-up of Prue Leith, Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig has also divided opinion.

And now it seems that tension could be mounting between presenters before the new show has even aired. According to a source, veteran GBBO judge Paul is struggling to find common ground with comedian Noel. They said:

“Noel has confided in pals that he and Paul weren’t instantly on the same page. They’re chalk and cheese. Paul is a total petrolhead, so he asked Noel if he likes cars. Noel told him he doesn’t drive.”

The eighth series of GBBO is set to air at the end of this year, so we hope that’s time enough to air out their differences!
