Matt Lucas accidentally eats something he shouldn't in new Bake Off trailer

New host of The Great British Bake Off Matt Lucas accidentally eats something he shouldn’t in a new trailer for the 2020 series.

The comedian chats to contestant Sura during one of her bakes, and after a shot of what appears to be rose hips pops up she tells him: ‘You’re not supposed to eat that.’

Matt sheepishly replies: ‘Well I know that now’.

The Little Britain star is replacing Sandi Toksvig, who stepped down from the role in January this year.

Elsewhere presenter Noel Fielding jokes that another baker has made ‘a death mask’, and judge Paul Hollywood delivers a typical withering put down, telling one unfortunate hopeful their creation is ‘dry’.

And as ever there seem to be a few kitchen disasters in store with baker Rowan resorting to sticking one of his creations in the microwave.

Filming took place at a hotel this year as the new series went ahead during the pandemic.

Cast and crew had a medical team on hand, who sprang into action when there was a suspected case of Covid-19 on set.

Matt previously described how the set-up was tough for the contestants.

‘It was tough for the bakers – we had two days on and two days off, and on the days off the bakers were in the practice kitchen, so it was gruelling for them,’ he shared.

The TV star revealed that he put on a bingo night one evening to keep eveyone entertained, with Paul and Prue Leith also creating fun things to do.

‘It was like a holiday camp’ Matt joked.

The Great British Bake Off returns September 22 at 8pm on Channel 4.
