Recently shock waves were sent across the internet on hearing about the BBC losing the Great British Bake Off to channel 4, I was not surprised in the slightest. Creators of the show Richard McKerrow and his partner Anna Beattie have really took a bashing from some of the public and the internet trolls are in full swing, I read one comment saying they should be ashamed of themselves. ummmm hello it’s a business not a charity for goodness sake and if a lot of these internet trolls were in their shoes they too would most likely sell their show to the highest bidder. At the end of the day channel 4 aren’t monsters and I still believe they will get decent viewing figures. Think of it this way adverts are a good way to get yourself a cup of tea and slice of cake as lets face it watching the show makes you crave cake. I also think change is good as reality shows can become so stagnant like big brother, x factor to name a few. I just don’t see how the BBC can compete for decent shows when advertisers throw millions at the other channels and it will keep happening. Even successful celebrities seem to do more adverts these days because it’s where the money is. Surely the BBC can’t complete with license money alone.
Have a great day folks
