CHANNEL 4 still has a big appetite for The Great British Bake Off – and it is not risking rivals having a nibble at it. After just one series, bosses are already in secret talks to keep screening Bake Off when its current deal runs out in 2019.

When I had taken up the challenge to swap my reporter’s suit for a special forces outfit to take on TV hardman Ant Middleton, I never thought it would end like this. An hour earlier I’d been yomping through woods, weighed down with a big Bergen pack as special forces veterans screamed in my ears. Taking part in trials from Channel 4’s SAS: Who Dares Wins to mark the show’s return tomorrow, I had been pleased with my efforts. The “enemy” was hot on our group’s tails but we had found an extraction point as gunfire and explosions rang out.
