It would be the third person to co-host with Mighty Boosh star Noel, 49, who was originally paired with Sandi Toksvig on the show.

Many fans already have strong opinions on who should front the Channel 4 baking hit in his place.

Some suggested hosts on some of Bake Off‘s spin-off shows deserved to step up to the main jobs.

One of the names in the frame was Stacey Solomon, who presents Bake Off: The Professionals with former contestant Liam Charles.

When asked who deserved to get the job, one fan wrote simply: “Stacey Solomon.

Others suggested that Harry Hill, 58, who presents the junior version of Bake Off, would be perfect alongside Noel.

一个推特: “I am begging @BritishBakeOff to replaceMatt with @HarryHill. It’s the logical option.

另一个说: “Harry Hill. He is absolutely brilliant on Junior Bake Off.

马特 tweeted the shock news he was leaving tonight in a long post, 写作: “Farewell Bake Off!

It’s been a delicious experience and I can’t imagine a more fun way of spending my summers.

But it’s become clear to me that I can’t present both Fantasy Football League and Bake Off alongside all my other projects.

“所以, after three series and 51 情节, I am cheerfully passing the baguette on to someone else.

I would like to give my warmest thanks and gratitude to everyone at Love Productions and Channel 4 and to Noelipops, 保罗, Dame Prue, the crew and, 当然, the wonderful bakers for welcoming me into the tent.

I wish whoever takes over the very best and I can’t wait to tune into the next series without already knowing who won!”
