Is BBC axing The Great British Sewing Bee?
Speculation that BBC executives are keen to make a clean break from their “Great British…” franchise.
Rumours are swirling in the UK that the BBC is set to pull the pin on The Great British Sewing Bee.
According to reports senior BBC executives are keen to make a clean break from the “Great British…” franchise, following Love Productions selling The Great British Bake Off.
Question marks also remain over The Great Pottery Throwdown and Bake Off spin-off Crème de la Crème which features professional pastry chefs.
Neither Love nor the BBC would comment on the claims, but the BBC was unable to confirm that a new series of the Great British Sewing Bee has been commissioned.
A spokesman for Love Productions said: “No decision has yet been made regarding the future of The Great British Sewing Bee” but declined to comment further.
Asked whether auditions for The Great British Sewing Bee had taken place, the BBC declined to comment.
The Great British Sewing Bee screens in Australia on the LifeStyle channel.
