World news – GB – Sandi Toksvig and Prue Leith have surprise Bake Off reunion on The Write Offs


Sandi Toksvig and Prue Leith had a Great British Bake Off reunion on Sandi’s new Channel 4’s The Write Offs tonight, and it was everything we needed.

The pair used to star alongside each other on the hit baking show until Sandi announced her departure in January after three years of co-hosting with Noel Fielding.

Proving theirs no bad blood between her and her Bake Off chums, Sandi wasted no time in roping in her chef friend for the first episode of the two-part series which sees her help eight adults who cannot read or write to master basic literacy.

Prue joined the presenter after she had set a cookery challenge, which saw the participants tasked with preparing a chicken pie using one of Prue’s recipes.

Cookery writer Prue was delighted by the results as she came in and sampled each dish.

She even went to hug one hopeful, Tommy, after he confessed that it was the first meal he’d ever made.

‘If we got chicken pie as good as that in most pubs I’d be very, very happy,’ Prue enthused.

Unsurprisingly, viewers were over the moon to see Sandi and Prue back together again and shared their utter delight on Twitter.

Echoing a similar sentiment, another added: ‘Lovely to see Prue Leith and Sandi Toskvig working on another TV show together.’

#thewriteoffs Aw I love that Prue is on there as well. Tommy’s “Ooo” made me chuckle

The new series of Bake Off kicked off tonight, with Matt Lucas making his debut as Sandi’s replacement.

The comedian began the show with another hilarious impersonation of Boris Johnson, this time mocking his coronavirus address to the nation.

And of course, the opening episode wasn’t without disaster, as contestant Sura accidentally knocked Dave’s upside-down pineapple cake to the ground as she attempted to swat a fly.
