Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins have revealed that their only regret about leaving The Great British Bake Off was that Mary Berry didn’t get to celebrate 10 years on the show.

The pair had hosted GBBO from 2010 until 2016 when it moved from the BBC to Channel 4, after which they announced they would no longer continue to host it.

Mary, 86, also left Bake Off at this time, with fellow judge Paul Hollywood, 55, announcing he would be staying on after it changed network.

Mel, 53, and Sue, 51, revealed that they have no regrets about leaving the show except that Mary Berry didn’t get to celebrate 10 years on it.

Speaking to The Times, Mel explained: ‘I think we would have left when Mary wanted to leave.’

Sue added: ‘I think we would have done ten years, something like that. A ten-year anniversary and then Mary would have maybe gone on to pastures new and we would have left with her.’

Mel admitted: ‘That’s my only regret, that Mary didn’t get her anniversary show. For me there is an element of wistfulness about “we could have had a couple more years.”

 ‘But once you have a show like Nadiya [Hussain, who won in 2015], who is a lightning rod of humility and fabulousness and 16 million people watch it, I think you know that the graph has peaked.’

Sue also revealed that the pair have not watched the show since they left, adding: ‘I just think it would make me sad to watch it.

‘We gave it everything we had and we made a decision that was easy to make, but hard sometimes to reflect upon. You just wish it well.’
