Is Jo Brand hosting?

Yes, comedian Jo is hosting – and will be joined once again by regular Tom Allen.

Jo has been very vocal about how much she loves hosting Extra Slice.

In a November 2018 interview with Scotsman, Jo waxed lyrical about the show, saying: “I love its happy audience, funny panel and – unintentionally terrifying sometimes – audience baking.

“And I liked the format. It’s a bit like Have I Got News For You, presenting with a panel of funny people and an audience.”

What is The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice?

The programme really does what it says on the baking tin – it’s an extra slice of all the tastiness of the main show.

Like the main show, An Extra Slice is also shown on Channel 4.

The show looks back at the past week’s bakes – and decides whether the right person left the tent.

It also includes unseen footage that wasn’t aired in the week’s episode.

Audience members can also get their own baking rated on the show by the celebrity guests.

Jo shares pictures sent in from cooks around the country – ranging from culinary delights to baking disasters.

And the evicted baker also guest stars and gets a chance to re-do one of their failed bakes.

Tom selects bakes from the audience for the celebs to try – and also highlights the worst one.
