Fan favourite Paul Hollywood has been announced as one of the judges for the American version of the The Great British Bake Off.

Paul Hollywood will be joined by the Food Network’s Marcela Valladolid on The Great American Baking Competition which will kick-off Stateside this summer.

Hollywood assured fans of the cult baking show on Twitter that he is not leaving The Great British Bake Off adding: "The American version will be fascinating for me, don't know how they'll cope with me, mind!"

Comedian and TV presenter Jeff Foxworthy will host The Great American Baking Competition which will premiere on May 29 on CBS, while Hollywood's new show Bread will debut on the BBC next Wednesday March 13.

Hopefully we’ll get to see it the American version here too!
