New GBBO hosts announced

Paul HollywoodChannel 4 has announced who will replace Mary Berry, Mel Giedroyc, and Sue Perkins this fall for the new season of GBBO, the first at the show's new home. The rumors have been confirmed: Sandi Toksvig, food writer Prue Leith, and comedian Noel Fielding will join Paul Hollywood for the next season

Leith said she was "so thrilled to be joining... the biggest show on TV". The others have indicated it's an honor to be included in the cast. The three will join Paul Hollywood, the only remaining host from the BBC version of the show. Mel and Sue declined to follow Paul, while Berry indicates that she wasn't even asked to move to Channel 4.

The reaction from fans was mixed, with some supporting the new hosts while others didn't think the right selections were made. The proof, as they say, will be in the pudding (and pies and cakes) that will be revealed this fall when the new season premieres. Do you think the show will retain the huge following it has accumulated over the years?
