I like Noel Fielding but can't see him in GBBO
Will have to watch one episode to find out! and to see what he wears always interesting :D
Sandi more the expected style perhaps

I think Noel can be a bit of an acquired taste. First few times I saw him I thought he was a bit Russell Brandish but the more I see him I think he is really intelligent and quirky.

Have always liked Sandi. I will watch the first episode but somehow I don't think it will be the same.

I'd been a fan for some time
I didn't expect my friend who is very conventional, to like him the first time she saw him
She was astonished - why wouldn't she like him? She described him as "beautiful" and "gently funny"

Think it will be an interesting and refreshing line-up - apart from creepy PH of course ;) .

I have just read various articles about the new GBBO line up. I suspect that C4 are trying to change it into one of those USA shows where teams of professional bakers shriek around making 72 cupcakes in weird flavours. Prejudiced, moi :rolleyes: , heaven forbid ;)

Noel Fielding is a surreal comedian known for his eccentric dandyish clothing, he is also a painter and musician

I can't see that the line up they have chosen would fit with that, and the criteria for applications are the same as last year, it is the original team behind the scenes. I suspect that one of Noel's qualifications is that he coul be described as a modern English eccentric. But we will see.

. I agree, he's very divisive, especially for a family show. Sandi seems a very obscure choice too. I will still watch but I'll see it as a completely different programme, as it'll annoy me if I try to compare it to GBBO.

On the upside, I much prefer Prue to Mary,so one positive change

I actually know Sandi, not really well but well enough to have a chat to so I shall watch more out of interest to see how she does, but after that I probably won't. To me, the bake off is over.

Think this link works a bit better http://www.telegraph.co.uk/tv/2017/06/2 ... edly-cant/

However, I'm not at all surprised she can't stand him .......... I've never met him and I find him odious.

Do we think this real or the usual stirring for publicity?
They are all supposed to be experienced professionals after all...
I don't get the issue with PH, he doesn't worry me, I've quite enjoyed City Bakes
Have to wait for broadcast I suppose

I have enjoyed PH City Bakes programmes, many of the cities are those less visited, such as Antwerp,

I've never met him either ... and used to quite like him ... but over time he seems to have not only believed his own publicity about being attractive but has, on tv at least, started behaving like a bit of a lech .... the twinkle has turned into a leer ... :sprout:
