Sue Perkins takes Live! In Spectacles on tour

She may have started her career as one half of character comedy duo Mel & Sue (their MTV-style Euro VJs is still fondly recalled in some quarters), but Sue Perkins has been more recently renowned for her work on The Great British Bake Off and being falsely linked to the Top Gear hosting job. As she prepares to go solo for her Live! In Spectacles tour, we hear how she intends to deal with a live audience and how a Cambodian hermit makes his way into her show.

Opinion: what next for Mel & Sue?

If they are really loyal they will do something else with the BBC. But I suspect Sky - and ITV and maybe even Netflix and Amazon Prime and others - are waving virtual cheque books in their direction as we speak. Let's see if they can a) resist their dough b) find a project that works as well for them as Bake Off. Because what we've seen over the years is that with Mel & Sue, despite their obvious talents, some of their projects have been half-baked.
