Paul Hollywood undecided about Great British Bake Off future

Paul Hollywood remains undecided about whether he will follow 'The Great British Bake Off' to Channel 4.

The 50-year-old presenter has reportedly held talks with TV bosses at the BBC and Channel 4 about the future of the programme, but is still to decide whether he will continue in his current role.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Paul's definitely not made up his mind yet on what to do and is looking at what's the best deal for him. Channel 4 are desperate to secure him and provide fans with some continuity from the original line-up."

Meanwhile, Jay Hunt - who is Channel 4's chief creative officer - claimed recently that the programme will be in safe hands when when it shifts across in 2017.

She said: "'Great British Bake Off' will have a safe home. The show of soggy bottoms and good crumb will be made by exactly the same team who have always made it. We love it just as it is. And for an amateur baker like me, that's a real cause for celebration."

Jay is reportedly desperate to lure Paul over to front a revamped programme, especially as co-host Mary Berry, 81, is likely to remain loyal to the BBC.
