'Great British Baking Show' host Sandi Toksvig is leaving the show

The presenter for “The Great British Baking Show” (known as “The Great British Bake Off” in the U.K.) announced Thursday she is leaving the reality baking competition after three years to focus on other projects. 

“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,” Toksvig wrote in a statement Thursday on Twitter. “As my waistline will testify, Bake Off is an all consuming show.”

Production is currently searching for Toksvig’s replacement: “Candidates must have experience of mopping up spills and the occasional tear, making tea and keeping the amateur bakers to time,” a news release from Britain’s Channel 4 quipped. 

Toksvig will still appear in the already-taped special “The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up to Cancer,” which is set to air this year and features stars like “Jaws” actor Richard Dreyfuss, “Queer Eye” fashion expert Tan France and singer James Blake.
