Great British Bake Off co-presenter Sue Perkins will be missing from tonight’s episode of the hit bbc show.

The presenter, deemed a crucial ingredient in the show’s enduring success, will miss her first show since the runaway hit first hit screens in 2010.

Sue is said to have taken a week off to deal with a family bereavement.

A Bake Off source revealed: “Sue was disappointed not to be able to join the team in the tent but she is back next week.”
