Stacey Solomon replaced on Channel 4 show after just one series

Stacey's Bake Off: The Professionals replacement was confirmed by Channel 4 today.

Stacey Solomon will not be returning to Bake Off: The Professionals for the upcoming series this year.

The Loose Women panellist, 33, presented the Great British Bake Off spin-off show alongside former Bake Off contestant Liam Charles, who competed on the eighth series in 2017.

Stacey and Liam were the two hosts in the seventh series, which aired between May and July, and featured 12 pastry chefs going head-to-head in delicious challenges.

The news of Stacey’s departure was confirmed on Friday (12 May) in a tweet announcing the show’s return and it’s brand new presenter.

Comedian and television personality Ellie Taylor will take over presenting duties for the upcoming batch of episodes.

The mum-of-one recently competed on Strictly Come Dancing last year and first got a taste of the Bake Off world earlier this year as a contestant on The Great Stand Up to Cancer Bake Off.

The tweet – which was posted from the official Twitter account – reads: “From Ted Lasso to tiramisu - we’re delighted to welcome @EllieJaneTaylor as our new co-host on Bake Off: The Professionals alongside @LiamcBakes Pastry chefs beware - judges @BenoitBlin_MCA & @Cherish_Finden are also back for pud! The new series arrives on @Channel4 this summer."

The 2023 Bake Off: The Professionals team – including the returning judges Benoit blin and Cherish Finden - are all pictured holding a plate with a mouth-watering sweet treat on top.


The food-themed competition series has had a bunch of lineup changes since it debuted in 2016, including former presenters Tom Kerridge, Angus Deayton and Tom Allen.

I’m A Celebrity winner Stacey gave birth to daughter Belle in February this year.

Stacey, who is also mum to 15-year old Zachary; Leighton, 10; Rex, three and one-year-old Rose, has kept her 5.6 million Instagram followers up to date with her family.

Stacey’s children were ‘annoyed’ over her tattoo tribute to husband Joe Swash, who was eliminated from I’m a Celebrity earlier this week.

Stacey had previously joked she was going through a ‘midlife crisis’ when she wanted to get a tattoo for her kids.

With that being said, she ended up getting a tattoo in tribute to her husband which didn’t go down well with everyone.

Appearing on Loose Women after leaving the jungle on Tuesday night (9 May) Swash said he was ‘really surprised’ by his wife’s gesture, but that it wasn’t met with the same reaction elsewhere.

"I was so surprised! She was going off to do one for the kids and get one for the kids, but I don't think she could make her mind up so she got me done,” he said.

"The kids were so annoyed about it, they were like 'what's going on here mum?'"
