author avatar by 8 years ago

Following the announcement that the Great British Bake Off will switch from the BBC, Channel 4 have revealed that Chris Evans will take over presenting duties.

Evans insists the format of the show will remain unchanged and, alongside co-host Shaun Ryder, he will respect what makes the show special to fans.

“The show is about cakes, not about me and Shaun,” he shouted.

“There will be a few fun segments, such as Throw a Cake in a Lake and Oops Upside Your Bread, but we won’t change much.”

The news has received a mixed response from fans of the show, ranging from furious indignation to incandescent anger.

“Fuck that,” said Bake Off fan Simon Williams.

No details have been released about who the show’s judges will be, but former Baywatch star Erika Eleniak, who jumped out of a cake in the action film Under Siege, has been touted as a replacement for Mary Berry.

“The nineties was a golden era in my TV career, and I really think people want to recapture the magic of me pretending I didn’t expect Shaun Ryder to swear,” Evans shrieked.

“Having said that, I’m a huge fan of the show and, apart from the live audience and a segment called Achy Breaky Tart, we won’t change much.”
