As fans mourn the loss of the Great British Bake Off as we know it, the rumor mill continues to swirl fast and furious around the future of the series and its (former) stars.
After the show’s production company announced it would leave its home network the BBC for Channel 4 next season, the three stars swiftly announced their respective departures; only judge Paul Hollywood will follow Bake Off to its new channel.
Berry announced her departure from GBBO in an official statement, saying, “My decision to stay with the BBC is out of loyalty to them, as they have nurtured me, and the show, that was a unique and brilliant format from day one. I am just sad for the audience who may not be ready for change, I hope they understand my decision.”
While the BBC has yet to announce anything official, a spokesperson did say the network intended to “cook up more unmissable shows with [Berry] in the future,” per the Telegraph.
In the meantime, Bake Off is currently airing its seventh and final season on the BBC.
