Sandi Toksvig, Noel Fielding, Prue Leith and Paul ­Hollywood will all be back for the next series of "The Great British Bake Off".

The 60-year-old TV presenter has confirmed that her and the "Mighty Boosh" star will return to host the next series of the Channel 4 baking show while baker Paul and chef-and-author Prue will also return to judge the new bakers.

She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I think we are good to go ... The gang this year were exceptional. We've wept and laughed.

"The final is more nerve-racking than any other show."

This year's final takes place next Tuesday (30.10.18), where Ruby Bhogal, Rahul Mandal and Kim-Joy will battle to be 2018 champion.

Paul recently teased this year's final could be the "best" ever because the standard has been set so high.

He said: "It's going to be a fantastic final next week. We have got three great bakers and each one of them has this very artistic flair. If they bring their A-game, that is going to be the best final ever - I promise you."

The nation were shocked when "The Great British Bake Off" moved to Channel 4 but Richard McKerrow - the owner of Love Productions, the company behind the hugely popular programme - revealed he decided to do so because he felt the series was "under threat" at the BBC.

Richard said: "It was to protect the format for all sorts of reasons. It was not all about money. We felt the format was under threat at the BBC. It was not something we wanted to do. It was something we felt impelled to do. Channel 4 felt the safest place, as a public-service broadcaster. Not that there weren't a few nervous times in the period post going to C4, but deep down we knew what the format was. It is about the baking and the bakers."
