Great British Bake Off judge Prue Leith has wondered if they will be able to stop laughing long enough to do some work when new host Matt Lucas teams up with co-presenter Noel Fielding. 

It was announced on Wednesday that Little Britain star Lucas was taking over from Sandi Toksvig in the tent, with the show tweeting a video of Lucas giving Fielding a laugh.  

"So excited to be working with @RealMattLucas, the combination of him and @noelfielding11," wrote Leith, "will we stop laughing long enough to get any filming done??!!!"

Leith's fellow judge Paul Hollywood wrote: "I'm a genuine fan of Matt's, he's a fantastic addition to the team and I can't wait to start working with him."
