Has it been confirmed? I've only read it in The Mail.

I know she has left GBM. I think she might be quite good.

I like her - just wish they'd get rid of creepy Paul. Can't think of any duo still alive to present/compère or whatever you might call it - Matthew Fort and Oliver Peyton maybe? 8-)

Well, her publicity machine is in full cry, her wish for the job is in all the papers and one tabloid, apparently, has the details of her racy past! I bet she gets the job.

I can see that working.

I also wish it was the other way round though, Mary Berry staying & Paul Hollywood leaving.

Her racy past is well known. She wrote all about it here:
