Noel Fielding is Missing from The Great British Baking Show Holidays 2021 Premiere
The Great British Baking Show 2021 premiered on December 3rd, with hosts Tom Allen and Matt Lucas.
Tom normally hosts GBBO's Extra Slice rendition, but he took Noel Fielding's position for this year's Holiday special.
Addressing Noel’s absence, Tom said:
As you know, Christmas is all about a child being born and Noel has just become a father again, so I am here in his place.
Noel was unable to appear on The Great British Baking Show: Holidays episode 1 because his wife was expecting their second baby.
He has a long-term partner named Lliana Bird, with whom he has two children, Dali and Iggy. Dali was born in 2018, while she welcomed Iggy in 2020.
Meanwhile, many fans wonder if Noel is gay, but that is definitely not the case!
Will Noel Fielding Appear as a Host on The Great British Baking Show Holidays 2021?
Yes, despite not featuring on The Great British Baking Show: Holidays premiere, Noel Fielding will host the second episode.
Matt Lucas and Noel can be seen introducing the program's 'New Year' episode, which features past Bake Off contestants Henry, Nancy, Rahul, and Helena.
Noel is impossible to miss in the New Year's special, as he wears yet another eye-catching shirt. The host/comic only participates in one episode this year, but Noel will undoubtedly grace the tent for the hour-long extravaganza.
