Los Angeles - Britney Spears is interested in a role on the Great British Bake Off

The Toxic hitmaker thinks the popular cooking show is "beautiful" and would love to land a job on the programme when it moves across to Channel 4 next year because she loves whipping up calorific treats.

Speaking on BBC Radio 1 on Wednesday she said when asked whether she would like to have a role on the show: "That's (the idea of the programme is) beautiful. That's awesome. I love cooking."

And the 34-year-old may just be in luck as bosses are currently on the hunt for a new judge after Mary Berry quit following its recent change.

They're also hoping to bag a presenter that will give Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc a run for their money after they turned their backs on the show just minutes after Channel 4 was announced as the new broadcaster. 

Despite the huge shake up, Paul Hollywood - who has been a judge on the programme since it first started in 2010 - has agreed to move across when the show makes its shift after he was offered a mega-money deal. 

He said recently: "Since I was a kid, baking has been part of my life. The seven series inside the tent have created some great memories. 

"Best of all, I have felt so pleased to experience other people getting the baking bug, just as I did when my dad helped me make my first loaf. The Great British Bake Off has brought baking to the nation and we've seen people from all walks of life and backgrounds, experience the highs and lows of competition, and more importantly helping each other.

"It's been a huge part of my life in the past few years and I just couldn't turn my back on all that - the bakers themselves, the bakes, the team that makes it, and of course the tent, the bunting, and who could forget... the squirrels. So I am delighted that I will be continuing as a judge when ...Bake Off moves to Channel 4."

Channel 4 bought the rights to the show for an estimated £75m last week after they found out negotiations between the BBC and Love Productions - the makers of the programme - had broken down.
