An ex-Bake Off participant criticizes distracting hosts ...

Dan Chambers, an ex-Bake Off competitor, has spoken up about the popular hosts on the popular show and how distracting they may be when the contestants competed.

Chambers, who was the first person to be eliminated when he appeared on Metro in 2019, said that while host Neil Fielding was very funny, some of the remarks he made were so outrageous that they were not shown on the program.

"A lot of the things that he would say didn't make it into the paper, because he'd say anything he wanted to and it might not have been quite appropriate," he said.

Sandi Toksvig, a former presenter who has since been replaced by Matt Lucas, was also very distracting, according to him.

"You're thinking 'I've gotn't really got time to talk to you,' and you've got to be like 'I've got to crack on with this,' he said.

The Great British Bake Off re-launched on television screens on Tuesday, September 13, with Noel and Matt returning as co-hosts, and Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood returning to judge the new batch of bakers.

Will, the first contestant to be canceled from the show, failed to impress judges with his baking abilities.

Despite his disappointment, he left in good spirits, saying, "I'm nevertheless glad to have achieved my goal."

After leaving the program, he wrote a very heartfelt letter, expressing how much his experience on Bake Off meant to him.

"I feel Bake Off represents a contemporary sense of Britishness," he said. "It's a diverse, dynamic, friendly, creative, supportive, and loving place forged together by a shared passion for baking."

"I feel so honored to be a part of that [passion]," he said.

The Great British Bake Off is available on Channel 4 in the United Kingdom. In the United States, it's known as The Great British Baking Show, and it's available on Netflix. Bake Off: An Extra Slice, hosted by Tom Allen and Jo Brand, will air on Fridays at 8pm on Channel 4.
