Sandi Toksvig is to leave The Great British Bake Off after three years.

The presenter said she wanted to focus on other work commitments. “As my waistline will testify, Bake Off is an all-consuming show,” Toksvig tweeted.

“Bake Off is a wonderful programme which has already proved it can happily withstand a change of hosting personnel,” she added.

Her co-host Noel Fielding said he would miss her, but knew “we were lucky to have her for 3 amazing years”.

The pair took over presenting duties when the programme moved to Channel 4 in 2017.
