Channel 4 funnyman Alan Carr has admitted he isn’t interested in presenting the Great British Bake Off, and doesn’t even really like the show.
The cake baking extravaganza will move to Channel 4 next year, with Paul Hollywood but there’s a space to fill where Mel and Sue used to be.
Davina McCall, Jo Brand and Alan Carr had all been rumoured to take over the presenting slot previously, as well as Jamie Oliver and Danny Baker.
However, speaking to Heat, Alan said that not only has he not been asked about fronting the show when it leaves the BBC, he’s not even a fan.
“Bake Off? Can I just say, I haven’t been linked to it, because everyone keeps asking me,” he said when asked if he watched the show.
“I don’t love the show as much as everyone else – don’t send me death threats! So I feel I’d be taking a job away from someone.
“I know I look like I eat a lot of cakes but it don’t mean I wanna be in that tent. Cos someone would love that job.”
A new rumoured duo could be French and Saunders, who could replace Mel and Sue!
“That would be good,” he said.
Despite not being a huge fan however, Alan sounds positive about the new Bake Off at its new home.
Alan said: “I think Channel 4 will bring an edge to it. I think it’ll be good, yeah.”
The current series of The Great British Bake Off continues on BBC One.
