Sue Perkins joined Paul Ross and discussed the future of The Great British Bake Off as it moves to Channel 4.

The GBBO Christmas specials will air on Christmas Day and Boxing Day, the last episodes to be aired on the BBC. Perkins, co-host Mel Giedroyc and star judge Mary Berry have all quit the show. 

Perkins said that she hoped people would enjoy the final BBC episodes, and whilst it is sad that some are leaving as the show moves to Channel 4, "everyone made the decision that was right for them."

She revealed that thinks she will work with Berry and Giedroyc in the future, but "the important thing is not to rush it."

Paul Ross also suggested that Richard Osman and Danny Baker could replace Mel and Sue on the Channel 4 version of the show. Perkins said: "If I was going to be replaced by anybody I can think of no finer gents."
