Amazon has secured headline sponsorship on The Great British Bake Off’s upcoming second season.Amazon’s biggest UK television purchase yet, the deal is reported to be worth around £5m, according to The Guardian, casting GBBO as one of the most valuable entertainment sponsorships in the UK – in the league of The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent. It will take the opportunity to promote its Echo speakers and Alexa voice assistant within the show’s advertisement breaks.GBBO attracted the largest audience among 16- to 34-year-olds of any TV show in the UK last year – one of the retailer’s biggest consumer groups – with the finale reaching 11 million viewers.The sponsorship arrangement includes spin-off programming Bake Off: An Extra Slice, festive episodes, and Bake Off: The Professionals. Channel 4 paid £75m last year to poach the show from the BBC, restarting the series after it had run for seven seasons on the Beeb.Initially, Channel 4 struggled to generate advertiser interest, and ended up splitting its headline sponsorship package between baking brands Dr Oetker and Lyle’s golden syrup, which paid £2m each.The GBBO deal comes as Amazon’s rival Netflix has snapped up the first seven series of the show, making the early seasons available on its service in time for Easter.The second Channel 4 series will be screened later this year. The show’s judges, Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood, will return alongside hosts Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig.

Nigerian defender, Leon Balogun, was again an used substitute as Brighton lost their week 12 Premier League clash with Manchester United 3-1 at Old Trafford on Sunday evening.The Super Eagles central defender is yet to lace booth for the Seagulls this season after sidelined by injury most of last term.Even as Brighton’s Manager, Graham Potter, made his mandatory three changes with Pascall Gross replacing Leandro Trossard and Solly March coming in for Martin Montoya and Aaron Connolly switched for Glenn Murray, Balogun was left unused in another game. The win however moved United to their highest Premier League position in two months as they go seventh.Andreas Pereira’s first goal of the season set Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men on their way to a fifth win in six games.After a long VAR check, Davy Propper’s own goal doubled United’s advantage before half-time, with Marcus Rashford responding almost immediately after Lewis Dunk had pulled a goal back for Brighton.Rashford should have had another but inexplicably fired Daniel James’ cross wide of an open goal.Brighton keeper Mat Ryan saved from James and Brazilian midfielder Fred, who was outstanding, before denying what would have been a memorable solo effort from Anthony Martial in the latter stages.The result was United’s biggest home Premier League triumph since August and, after their 3-0 win over Partizan Belgrade in the Europa League on Thursday, was also the first time they had scored six in two games since March.Elsewhere in the English topflight yesterday, Liverpool widen the gap between them and Manchester City to nine points with a 3-1 defeat of Pep Guardiola’s men.The Reds are seating pretty on top of the log on 34 points from 12 matches. Leicester City who on Saturday handed out a two nil spanking to Arsenal are second on same 26 points as Chelsea but ahead on a superior goal difference of 21.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
