Paul Hollywood has spoken out after tabloid papers stated there’s been problems with the new Channel 4 hosting line-up for The Great British Bake Off.
Last week rumours stated that the new team were not getting on, however were firmly denied by bosses at the channel.
Now Paul Hollywood has spoke out to remind the public who the real stars of the show are.
“The presenters are on for about five minutes and the bakers are on there for 50 minutes, so they are the stars of the show,” Hollywood told The Sun.
“The characters on this year’s show are the strongest we have had and the standard is 10 times higher.
“People get wrapped up in all this ‘host and judges’ thing too much. They forget that it’s all about the bakers.”
He also revealed his initial impressions of new presenters Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig.
“I had tears rolling down my face because of how funny Noel and Sandi are,” he added.
The Great British Bake Off will air on its new home of Channel 4 later this year.
