Around 14 million people watched her bake her way to victory in the royal-themed final of The Great British Bake Off, now Candice Brown is reportedly in talks to host her own cooking show with fellow finalist Jane Beedle.
The superstar baker – who could earn up to £1million following her triumphant turn on the BBC baking show – is said to be the target of TV bosses who are keen to capitalise on her success and sign her up for a brand new show.
In advance of the credits rolling on the Bake Off final, it was revealed that Candice and Jane were planning a “Genoise free getaway” together, and now, according to the Daily Star, producers are interested in turning their scheduled trip to France into a road trip-style food programme.
“Their friendship was the highlight of the show,” a source claimed. “Producers can’t wait to sign them up for their own programme, which would be a lovely mixture of age and experience.”
This comes after Jane, 61, expressed her excitement over the possibility of working alongside Candice, 31, again – but dismissed the idea of fronting the revamped series of Bake Off on Channel 4.

Speaking at a book signing last week, she said: “I’d love to have my own show. You might see us as a double act one day!”
Meanwhile, Candice told the Loose Women panel that she and Jane have started making plans for their European adventures, adding: “Jane goes to France quite a lot and we were saying we should get in a car and just go.”
It’s fair to say, we would love to view their itinerary – but in the meantime, we’re launching a petition for a BBC docu-drama to follow Val and Sels post-Bake Off journey to boot.
