Great British Bake Off’s Mel and Sue Have Found Their Next Hosting Gig

Just like the arrival of Botanical Week, Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins are ready to immerse themselves in some new and exciting territory. A new show with them as co-hosts, that is! Per the BBC, the former Great British Bake Off hosts have officially chosen their next project together, with the duo signing up to host a revival of the classic, family-friendly British television series The Generation Game. The quirky game show has had a few iterations since debuting in 1971, with the basic structure following “pairs of family members across generations” as they take part in “performance and task-based games,” with the ultimate goal of reaching the end to play a conveyor belt that spews out an array of prizes. In addition to Mel and Sue, a panel of celebrity judges will be present to help assign scores and keep the peace, as well. “It’s a cuddly toy, it’s a toaster, it’s a circular power saw, no it’s Mel and Sue doing The Generation Game,” the hosts said in a statement. “We can’t believe it, we are so excited!” A premiere date has yet to be announced. Fingers crossed that PBS will pick it up.
