Sara Pascoe Sewing Bee


The BBC announced Comic and writer Sara Pascoe is to take on hosting duties for The Great British Sewing Bee from Joe Lycett, who has stepped down after three series.

‘We’re bursting at the seams with joy that @sarapascoe will be joining Sewing Bee as our new host. Welcome to the family, Sara!’ a message from the Sewing Bee Twitter said.

Sara will join judges Patrick Grant and Esme Young when the show, which tries to find the UK's best amateur sewer, returns to BBC One next year.

Sara Pascoe actually appeared as a contestant on the show's 2020 Christmas celebrity special and said it was "such an honour" to be joining the show as a host.

Joe Lycett too said he was "absolutely thrilled" his friend was the new host. "I loved the three series I did, but I can't wait to see how she makes the haberdashery her home," he added.

 Sara has described her style as that of "a nine-year-old with a debit card", added: "I'm so inspired by creativity and skill and I am deeply in love with clothes so I can't think of a happier place to be."
