PRESENTER Anna Nolan may have whipped up another presenting gig for a second series of the Great Irish Bake Off.
TV3 are preparing to put pen to paper on a second series of the baking show just half-way through its first season as it continues to cook up a storm.
The Ballymount broadcaster has experienced moderate viewership so far with an average of just under 200,000 people turning in for the first two episodes. But it appears TV3 are more than happy with the show's progress, which kicked off as part of the station's autumn schedule last month.
"It's going really well and we're already in talks about a second series," show presenter Nolan told the Herald.
"It hasn't been signed off on yet, but things are looking really good."
And the ex-Big Brother star is more than likely to front the show again next season if it is given the green light.
TV personality and producer Anna (42) is joined on the show by judges Biddy White Lennon, an acclaimed food writer and Paul Kelly, award-winning pastry chef.
The baking series, which airs every Thursday, is half-way through its eight-episode run and targets a specific style/theme of baking each week.
"TV3 know that they are on to a good format with the show so I think that's why they are keen to bring it back next year," said Anna.
