BBC confirms Bake Off spin-off Creme de le Creme will return to BBC Two with new host Angus Deayton

The BBC has confirmed Creme de la Creme is staying put

The BBC might have lost the Great British Bake Off (GBBO) to Channel 4 but spin-off series Creme de la Creme is staying put with Angus Deayton confirmed as the show’s new host.

The show, which airs on BBC Two, was hosted by chef Tom Kerridge last year and sees 10 teams of professional pastry chefs compete in tasks to make perfect pastries and spectacular showcases.

Deayton, who is best known for hosting topical quiz ‘Have I Got News For You’ until he got fired in 2002, joins judges Benoit Blin, chef patissier at Raymond Blanc’s Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons in Oxfordshire, and Cherish Finden, executive pastry chef at The Langham, London.

Love Productions’ executive producer Kieran Smith said the team were “delighted” that Deayton was joining the show. “His distinct humour and presenting style brings a fresh dynamic to the show,” said Smith.

The show returns to BBC Two later in the year.
