Cult cooking show 'The Great British Bake Off' is set to move from its current home on BBC Two to BBC One after the success of the latest series
'The Great British Bake Off' is set to move from BBC Two to BBC One.
The programme - presented by comedians Mel and Sue and judged by Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry - has been a surprise hit for the BBC, who are now considering moving it from its current home on Two to a more prime slot.
An insider told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "No decision has been taken but it would be crazy not to look a the possibility of the show moving."
On its last show on Tuesday (09.10.12) it was watched by 5.2 million people, the highest viewing figures in the 8pm time slot, beating 'Holby City' on BBC One.
The show sees a number of contestants bake items ranging from buns to crackers and gingerbread houses in a bid to be named winner.
Each week, a contestant is eliminated, and one is named Star Baker.
The final of the show - which first began airing in August 2010 and is now in its third series - is due to be aired next week.
