Great British Bake Off hosts Mel and Sue to launch own tea shop?


Forget High Tea, it looks like Great British Bake Off hosts Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins may be putting their own spin on tea time.

Mel has revealed that she and Sue have dreamed about opening their own tea shop.

She told The Sun: "We've started talking quite seriously about setting up a little tea shop.

"We have this fantasy that, when the whole show is over, we'll set one up and bake for our customers."

She added that as it "would be very hard work, seven days a week", the duo may do it as a "pop-up or seasonal thing".

She also revealed that Bake Off judge and baker extraordinaire Paul Hollywood had given her a hand in the baking department.

She explained: "Paul gave us a good recipe for no-knead bread and Sue showed me how to make soda bread. Cake-wise, we made a pineapple upside-down sponge, which was a bit of a hit with the crew. And I really loved making it."
