Jamie Oliver

The bookies have already stated who would be their favourites to replace Mel and Sue, but who would replace Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry as the judges?

One name that has been flying around is celebrity chef Jamie Oliver. He's previously said that he'd "love" to be a judge on the show. 

He once told Now magazine: "We watch Bake Off. The whole family loves it. Secretly, there’s always a part of me in mourning because I’d love to be one of the judges.

“I love Mary Berry and it’s really great watching."

HOWEVER let's not get too carried away because the fate of Mary and Paul's role in the show still hasn't been decided. You never know, it may be announced that they will be making the move. 

Bookies have named their top contenders to replace Mel and Sue when the show touches down on Channel 4: Jennifer Saunders (8/1), Sarah Millican(12/1), Davina McCall(16/1) and current Bake Off Extra Slice host, Jo Brand(6/1).

Who do you think would be up to the task?
