get over dating fears - Sue perkins and anna richardson dating
Speaking to Lorraine Kelly on Tuesday, the 44-year-old described Sue as "an extraordinary person", and discussed how they fell in love.
Anna explained: "We've known each other for a few years, we've got mutual friends – you know what it's like in TV – you tend to know people.
Bake Off producers also face the mammoth task of finding a replacement for much-loved judge Mary Berry.
Last week famous foodies including Michel Roux Jr and Rachel Allen reportedly attended a screen test in London.
According to The Sun, they approached Anna to see if she would be up for stepping in to the Bake Off tent.
However, the 46-year-old turned the offer down out of loyalty to Sue, whom she has been dating since 2014.A source said: "It was always a non-starter for Anna.She’s very well thought of at Channel 4 and an obvious contender to host but it wouldn’t have been right."Her links with Sue made it an easy decision."Anna has had a long association with C4, beginning her presenting career on The Big Breakfast.She has worked on several factual formats for the broadcaster, including The Sex Education Show and Supersize vs Superskinny.More recently she has fronted controversial dating show Naked Attraction, which triggered scores of Ofcom complaints." Following the interview the host took to Twitter to thank her fans for their support.
