Great British Bake Off to undergo huge revamp after flurry of viewer complaints

Posted March 1, 2023 by: Admin #News

The Great British Bake Off is going through a major revamp in a bid to satisfy disgruntled fans who felt that the challenges on the last series were too complicated. The show, which is set to start filming in April, will return to basics with easier tasks and more classic bakes.


Fans were not pleased with the Halloween lantern challenge that had to be a piñata, and the time constraints were also criticised, with some describing them as “mission impossible”. The series was a disappointment for some viewers, with the underwhelming final watched by only 5.2 million people compared to 7.2 million the previous year.

Love Productions, which makes the show, has said that it is listening to fans and is taking steps to address their concerns. Richard McKerrow, the boss of Love Productions, admitted in The Media Podcast that the previous series was not the show’s strongest, and that they would “strip it back to basics, with a few twists.”


“We’re looking very, very, very hard at making sure it’s as good a series as it can be,” he said.

Judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith are expected to return to the show, while a replacement for presenter Matt Lucas alongside Noel Fielding is being finalised.

Fans of the show have long been concerned that the challenges were becoming too complicated and that the time constraints were too severe, resulting in contestants feeling stressed and upset. The revamp will hopefully address these concerns and bring back the show’s popularity.


The changes come as Love Productions continues to face criticism from viewers who feel that the show has lost its charm and that it is not as good as it used to be. With the show’s reputation at stake, Love Productions is keen to ensure that the next series is a success and that it returns to its former glory.
