Great British Bake Off fan Anna Kendrick dubs hosts Mel and Sue 'folk heroes'


Hollywood actress Anna Kendrick has said she is glad the recent Great British Bake Off drama turned presenters Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins into "folk heroes".

The 31-year-old star of Pitch Perfect revealed she is a big fan of the BBC One show, which made headlines with news of its move to Channel 4 next year.

Judge Mary Berry showed her solidarity for the BBC and presenting duo Mel and Sue by stating she would not make the move to the rival channel.

Anna told Graham Norton: "I am really upset about it. I'm sad. But it's great that it immediately turned Mel and Sue into folk heroes and we're all so proud of Mary who followed them.

"And of course Paul (Hollywood) stayed - with his bread and his goatee."

She appeared on Graham's BBC One chat show alongside singer Justin Timberlake to promote their latest project, the animated film Trolls.

SexyBack singer Justin voiced his support for American presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

He said: "I am a big Hillary supporter and without standing on my soap box, we live in an important time and she is an incredibly smart lady. I have known her for a long time and is brilliant, personable and she should be running our country."

The famous boy wizard actor admitted he had yet to see the West End production of Harry Potter And The Cursed Child.

He said: "I am not sure I will. I think it would be too weird an experience with people watching me to see how I react. I wouldn't be able to relax and enjoy it."

Singer Robbie Williams performs and tells Graham a funny anecdote that makes the television host ditch his usual red chair feature.
