Could it really happen?
What is even happening in 2016? Politics aside (which is a hefty statement), former Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls is on Strictly Come Dancing? Professional microwaved bullfrog Nigel Farage offered thousands to go on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!? And now, with The Great British Bake Off moving to Channel 4, it seems White Dee could replace Mel and Sue as hosts of the cooking show.
It wouldn’t be any weirder than anything else that happened this year.
The mum-of-two and star of the Channel 4 documentary Benefits Street is apparently keen on grabbing the presenting role – and she has some, uh, impressive credentials to match.
When asked if she was keen to go into presenting, she replied: ‘I’m funnier than Mel and Sue, so why not?’
Dee, also known as Diedre Kelly, said: ‘I also love baking and make a good soda bread and a cracking chocolate concrete. It takes a great skill to be a top baker.’
For you southerners who have no idea what those things are, here’s the BBC to the rescue…
Out of all the presenters in all the world to helm the show, she’d almost certainly be a different choice. But who would be her partner? Get Prince William in and you get the real odd couple.
