'Great British Bake Off's Candice Brown is set to get her own show after winning the series last week
'Great British Bake Off' winner Candice Brown is to front her own cooking show.
The series champion - who is known for her bright lipsticks and killer heels - is reportedly in talks with bosses about hosting her own road trip programme with fellow finalist Jane Beedle as TV executives are keen to continue their friendship on screen.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Their friendship was the highlight of the show. Producers can't wait to sign them up for their own programme, which would be a lovely mixture of age and experience."
And it seems bosses could be just be in luck as the 31-year-old star recently admitted that she and Jane were planning to jump in a car and head to France for a holiday.
Asked what her plans are now that she's won the show, she said: "Jane goes to France quite a lot and we were saying we should get in a car and just go."
And Jane appears to be on the same wavelength as every one else, as she is convinced she and Candice will end up becoming a "double act" one day.
Meanwhile, it seems bosses at the BBC are determined to do all they can to keep a culinary show on the channel after they lost the rights to the 'GBBO, which they've screened since 2010, to rival Channel 4 at the beginning of last month.
The shock move, which was secured after Channel 4 reportedly slapped down a three-year deal worth an estimated £75 million, has now spelled the end for judging duo Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood, who have both given their verdict on tray bakes for six years.
The 81-year-old culinary queen announced she was leaving her role out of "loyalty" to the BBC a few weeks ago, while the silver fox, 50, decided to accept the cash and go.
Although she's decided to walk away from the popular programme, Mary and hosts Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc - who also decided to quit hours after Channel 4 snapped up the rights - are reportedly being lined up for their own baking show.
