Speaking about her decision to leave, Sandi shared: “When stepping down from a job it is quite common for people to say they are doing so in order to spend more time with their family.
“Unusually I am departing from the Great British Bake Off so I can spend more time with my other work. As my waistline will testify, Bake Off is an all-consuming show.”
Sandi has hosted the show alongside Noel Fielding since 2017.

Who has hosted Bake Off in the past?
Before Noel and Sandi, the show was hosted by comedy duo Mel and Sue.
The pair were on the show from the start, back in 2010, until 2016 when they quit after the show when it moved from the BBC to Channel 4.
At the time they said: “We were very shocked and saddened to learn yesterday evening that Bake Off will be moving from its home. We made no secret of our desire for the show to remain where it was.
“The BBC nurtured the show from its infancy and helped give it its distinctive warmth and charm, growing it from an audience of two million to nearly 15 at its peak.”
They added: “We’ve had the most amazing time on Bake Off, and have loved seeing it rise and rise like a pair of yeasted Latvian baps.
“We’re not going with the dough. We wish all the future bakers every success.”
