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. It is believed creators Love Productions are not demanding more than the £75million that saw Channel 4 bag the show. This will be a blow to the BBC, which lost Bake Off after seven series when Love upped the price by almost £20million. A source said: “The ink on Channel 4’s Bake Off deal has barely dried, but they’re not taking any chances of losing it like the BBC did. After airing just one of the three series agreed in 2016 — which gave them some of their best ratings ever — securing its future has been a top priority. “By comparison, the BBC were still negotiating with Love while the third and final series of their last Bake Off deal was on TV. Channel 4 had to fight off ITV and Netflix to … [Read more...] about Channel 4 in secret talks to keep Great British Bake Off beyond current 2019 deal

After almost three weeks out of action, Manchester City look to move one step closer to being crowned Premier League champions when they visit Everton on Saturday. It seems like a lifetime ago that David Silva’s brace saw City register a comfortable 2-0 win at Stoke on March 12 but with most players in international action over the last week, there should be no sign of rustiness. The Toffees were the only side to deny Pep Guardiola three Premier League points before Christmas and are still the only team not to leave the Etihad empty-handed, after August’s 1-1 draw which saw Kyle Walker and Morgan Schneiderlin sent off. City will move within touching distance of the title with a win while Everton still have hopes of a seventh-placed finish and the chance of European football next year, so both sides will be chasing all three points. Which TV channel is Everton vs Manchester City on? Everton vs Manchester City will be live on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport 4K UHD from 5pm. … [Read more...] about What TV channel is Everton vs Manchester City?
GLASGOW is to make a dramatic and credible bid to rival London as Britain's media capital. Scotland's biggest city has announced it will formally pitch to host a new headquarters of Channel 4, luring chunks of the UK television industry north of the border. Its leaders believe existing thriving creative industries on the Clyde - not least at BBC Scotland and STV - will act as a magnet for the broadcaster, which is looking for a new second home. Herald View: Why Channel 4 should tune into case for Glasgow The leader and deputy leader of Glasgow's city government, Susan Aitken and David McDonald, have already written to Channel 4 executives saying they will make "a viable and persuasive bid, reflecting our standing as one of the most culturally, socially and ethnically diverse city regions within the UK and position as a leading centre for the arts and media". But Ms Aitken and Mr McDonald - and their many backers in TV and business- must fend off rival bids expected to come … [Read more...] about Glasgow bids for new Channel 4 HQ as it aims to be Britain’s media capital
