Fans are gutted after Stacey Solomon is replaced on Channel 4 show
Stacey Solomon fans are gutted after the presenter was replaced as host of Bake Off: The Professionals.
Channel 4 confirmed she won't be returning for a second season of the show after making her debut last year.
Stacey was on hosting duties alongside Liam Charles, who originally appeared on the Great British Bake Off and quickly became a fan favourite after starring on series 8 of the show.
Liam will be returning for a second season, but will have a new co-host.
Stacey has been replaced by comedian and actress, Ellie Taylor. The Ted Lasso star recently competed in Strictly Come Dancing.

Channel 4 confirmed Ellie will be taking over as co-host.
Judges Cherish Finden and Benoit Blin will also return for a second series of the hit Channel 4 spin-off.

The news comes after Stacey Solomon returned from her maternity leave to work on a new range with In The Style.
The former X Factor star launched her new spring/summer collection and said she is so incredibly proud of it.
"I’m so excited and proud as always - all the prices are £35 and under which is amazing. It is all made from more sustainable materials which in really proud of. It’s not easy to use sustainable fabrics and still make it affordable for you guys so I’m really happy we’ve been able to."
