Well what do we reckon?

ppeatfruit Sat 18-Mar-17 10:28:37

I THINK Pru Leith will be ok. and possibly Sandi but Noel Fielding will he have the same warmth of Mel and Sue?

triskele Sat 18-Mar-17 10:33:32

I wasn't going to bother when it moved to channel 4 as I lived Mel and Sue but now they've got Noel Fielding I'm in.

I love him!!

There was a Richard Ayoade rumour at one point wasn't there? Him and Noel = dream team!

ppeatfruit Sat 18-Mar-17 10:45:37

Yes It said that in the paper. That would make it too 'male' heavy though.

Also there is to be a programme headed by Nadiya on the Beeb going out head to head!

ppeatfruit Sat 18-Mar-17 10:47:49

I'll just have to record one of them <annoying decision to make>

dd thinks he should do it in the style of Richmond from the IT crowd.

ppeatfruit Sat 18-Mar-17 13:55:37

You see I've not managed to watch anything with NF in it. I did try once but it was egocentric shxx. IMO grin Can he relate to panicking contestants like Mel and Sue could I wonder?

Yes! Now that would be worth watching.
I never liked GBBO (sorry!) and Mel & Sue get right on my tits.

whoneedswings Sat 18-Mar-17 14:03:49

I so badly wanted to boycott it but I love Noel fielding... so torn!! I still don't see how it's going to work with channel 4's 'style' it was such a BBC show sad

stonecircle Sat 18-Mar-17 14:07:00

I think Sandi Toskvig is very much in the mould of Mel and Sue and she will be warm, empathetic and probably funnier. Prue Leith should be as good as Mary. Not sure what Noel F will bring or how he will gel with Sandi T.

Floggingmolly Sat 18-Mar-17 14:08:00

I won't be watching... It sounds crap.

Noel Fielding is enough to put me off any programme, let alone one that I had half a mind to boycott anyway.

But I think it's a sensible move by C4 - making it as different as they can.

I'd also enjoy watching Hollywood's head explode at the sheer alternative-ness of Fielding

Restorativepowersoftea Sat 18-Mar-17 14:10:03

I heard Noel Fielding on Radio 1 the other day and he likened his hosting of Bake Off to Salvador Dali advertising Cadbury chocolate. Give over angry

Restorativepowersoftea Sat 18-Mar-17 14:11:02

He came across as a try hard wannabe 'eccentric'. Such a turn off.

ppeatfruit Sat 18-Mar-17 14:14:33

I agree stonecircle. Sandi is very bright and witty. Maybe she could Noel in order? Pru could, she's clever too. She's a brilliant chef, better than <whispers> MB. I'm not sure she's a good baker though.

whoneeds Maybe you could watch one side and record the other. I LOVE Nadiya and will probably record that one.

ScoobyDoosTinklyLaugh Sat 18-Mar-17 14:19:39

I thought the move would be a disaster but I absolutely love Sandi and Noel. I liked the old bake off, but I really disliked Mel and Sue so I'm going to love it.

MadisonAvenue Sat 18-Mar-17 14:25:56

Total turn off for me with Noel Fielding and Sandi T.

OliviaStabler Sat 18-Mar-17 14:31:58

I won't be watching. Not GBBO without Mary in my view sad

beachbodyunready Sat 18-Mar-17 14:38:59

I love Sandy, I don't know much about Pru, Paul's the same and Noel I can't stand him, so will I be watching probably not😞

ppeatfruit Sat 18-Mar-17 15:13:22

beachbody Pru is classy enough to makes MB seem common shock but she's one of the girls IYSWIM.

I'm going to give it a chance with Noel if the women , and maybe Paul, can keep him order it should be alright. -or he might be so bad they chuck him off it-

emochild Sat 18-Mar-17 15:18:22

Sandy T is the reason that I won't be watching it -can't stand her

"He came across as a try hard wannabe 'eccentric'. Such a turn off."

I think you are right, @Restorativepowersoftea - and I am afraid that he will be seeing this as a vehicle for him to be whacky and eccentric, and that sort of attention seeking behaviour will ruin the programme.

The genius of Mel and Sue lay in the way they balanced their hosting role and the banter that involved with still making the bakers the stars of the show - whichninvolves a generosity and selflessness I don't think Noel Fielding possesses.

ppeatfruit Sat 18-Mar-17 15:25:01

Sorry restorative I missed you posts.Oh dear it sounds exactly what I thought ,NF is a pretentious twat. grin I wonder who he's crept up to to get the job.

AnneEyhtMeyer Sat 18-Mar-17 15:42:50

GBBO is finished as far as I'm concerned. This will be a pale imitation and not worth bothering with.

Madbengalmum Sat 18-Mar-17 15:44:29

Cant stand Noel F, so very disappointed.
