AIBU to think that if ITV gets GBBO, it will ruin it?

We'll have sob stories galore from the contestants and adverts every two minutes.

Yes and lose 15 minutes of baking time.

YANBU, it works too well on the BBC for it to change!

MadisonAvenue Mon 12-Sep-16 18:47:18

Oh crap, I forgot about the sob stories. I hate shows with ads so that'll ruin it for me regardless of anything else that changes.

Mmm to be fair the production company shouldn't change. They'll all just get a lot richer. Mary Berry will be blinged to the hilt.

takesnoprisoners Mon 12-Sep-16 18:48:07

Yup. And more 'characters' like Candice.

This will be the last series I watch then. Shame.

StStrattersOfMN Mon 12-Sep-16 18:49:17

Oh no sad

MadrigalElectromotive Mon 12-Sep-16 18:51:09

It's going to be rubbish. I'm so sad

Namechanger2015 Mon 12-Sep-16 18:51:11

Oh no! I can't stand ITV and never ever watch it. End of Bake Off for me too - I hope the production company realise what they are doing!

Palomb Mon 12-Sep-16 18:51:21

It'll be unwatchable because of the adverts, like everything else on itv.

PikachuSayBoo Mon 12-Sep-16 18:51:53

Might go to Amazon prime?

TWOBANANAS Mon 12-Sep-16 18:52:35

Too many adverts, too many dramatic pauses and too many emotional stories. It will be shit.

mogloveseggs Mon 12-Sep-16 18:53:29

Gutted sad

It won't be going anywhere until 2018 as there's a one year cooling off period in the contract apparently.

emilywemily Mon 12-Sep-16 18:56:23

Given the BBC are a bunch of corrupt fucking fat cat hypocrites who spent years protecting sex offenders I hope they go bankrupt!

Pyjamaface Mon 12-Sep-16 18:56:40

O god, ITV would ruin it. Stupid celebrity chefs every week as guest judges, fake drama and sob stories and only about 20 minutes of actual baking

emotionsecho Mon 12-Sep-16 18:57:43

It will go down the pan faster than ice cream thrown in the bin, perhaps we need to start a campaign to keep it on the BBC. Shame on Love Productions, the programme is what it is because of the BBC and now all they can see are £ signs.

PotteringAlong Mon 12-Sep-16 19:00:20

This is not good sad

Katinkka Mon 12-Sep-16 19:02:00

Can't they just change the presenters. Sue Perkins sounds like she's retching when she says 'baaaake'. Makes me feel sick.

TheNaze73 Mon 12-Sep-16 19:02:37

YABU. The license fee is a stealth tax & the BBC should be a subscription service

EverySongbirdSays Mon 12-Sep-16 19:03:05

YANBU if it goes to ITV they'll destroy it, public vote based on popularity (it's not like we can taste the bakes)

Fingers crossed it goes to Netflix/Prime but there's no saying the current presenting lineup will stay either - did hear it will also have to take a years break because of rights mightn't be on next year.

EdmundCleverClogs Mon 12-Sep-16 19:03:52

I'm reeeeallly hoping it's going to Netflix. I can't stand ITV, every reality/competition programme they have is so contrived and fake. They would ruin it, without a doubt.

HelenaDove Mon 12-Sep-16 19:08:10

Love Productions are the same people who made Benefits Street.

Amummyatlast Mon 12-Sep-16 19:09:56

Noooo, I hate ITV and refuse to watch it on principle.
