Matt Grady, managing consultant and manager of the hospitality recruitment team at Venture Recruitment, shares his insight for what roles could lie ahead for The Great British Bake Off duo Mel and Sue following their decision to quit after the show was bought by Channel 4.

The intellectual pair met at the University of Cambridge and have had similar careers in the public eye, not only as broadcasters but actresses and comedians, so with their variety of comedy talents, what could be next on the cards?

The branded food hospitality industry is growing from strength to strength. Mel and Sue would be naturals in Britain’s most well-known coffee shops such as Pret A Manger, Eat, Starbucks, Costa and Caffe Nero.

Picture the scene…

Customer: Mel, I’m not sure this Victoria Sponge is up to scratch.

Mel: Well, it had a good forking, perhaps it’s got a soggy bottom.

Sue: The terror of the soggy bottom kept me up all night.

Customer:In that case I’ll take two of your biggest baps please.

Leading by example with their blend of comedy, witty banter and solid knowledge of what a good scone looks like, I’m certain customers would be happy to take advice on what pastry goes best with their cappuccino!
