Jo Brand still up for an Extra Slice

Jo Brand confirmed she will be continuing on as the host of Extra Slice, the Great British Bake Off spin off show when it moves to Channel 4.

Jo and Paul Hollywood will be the only original members from the BBC show to make the move. Paul will be joined by Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding who take the place of Mel and Sue and cookery writer Prue Leith takes over from Mary Berry.

Channel 4 will follow the format of the BBC show, with Jo being joined by celebrities to offer their take on each week’s episode. Jo will also be joined by contestants as they are eliminated off the Bake Off.

Jo┬ásaid: “As a completely mediocre baker myself, but lover of all things spongey and tarty, I am really looking forward to another Extra Slice and all the fun and frolics that brings.”
