He will join Noel Fielding as co-host of the Channel 4 hit

Matt Lucas has joined The Great British Bake Off as its new co-host.

The former Little Britain star, 46, replaces Sandi Toksvig and will present alongside Noel Fielding.

He will join the flagship Channel 4 programme when filming for the 11th series begins in spring.

Lucas said: "I'm chuffed to bits to be joining the most delicious show on television.

"I can't wait to break bread with Noel, Prue and Paul and meet the brilliant bakers.

"And bearing in mind my love of cake, I've already ordered some much larger trousers in anticipation. See you in the tent."
