Don’t really like Matt Lucas too I don't understand this choice.

Can't stand the man. He doesn't seem to have done anything of note since Little Britain. I think he's a one trick pony and I don't really think he's got a sense of humour. Bake Off's gone a bit flat lately anyway - I really only watched the last series because of Sandi and Noel. I won't be watching the next one.Susan Calman would have been ideal. Hey ho - nothing lasts forever.

Oh no, not Matt Lucas. He would put anyone off a Victoria sponge

I can't understand why two presenters are needed.

Noel is lovely on his own..cupcake

Don’t really like Matt Lucas think he is very childish. Love Noel but hope it won’t be a fight between them for attention . Also feel it’s a bit male gender heavy now

Definitely not happy by this choice but hope I am proved wrong! grin

I was really hoping for Susan Calman, but she's now involved in The Great British Menu. I can't see Matt Lucas working on this, alongside Noel - I just hope that the all-male duo of presenters give the programme due dignity and that the focus is on the competitors, not the hosts.

Not keen (and loved Sandi and Mel and Sue before someone assumes it’s because he’s gay)

Can’t stand him. It seems weird to have 3 male presenters.

Interesting but not an obvious choice. So long as he doesn't make it all about him.

I have just read that Sandi's replacement is to be Matt Lucas. Not sure how I feel about it. It will depend on how silly he is.
