Dec. 7 (UPI) -- Comedian Matt Lucas announced on social media that he has left the competition series, The Great British Bake Off, after three seasons.

"Farewell Bake Off! It's been a delicious experience and I can't imagine a more fun way of spending my summers, but it's become clear to me that I can't present both Fantasy Football League and Bake Off alongside all my other projects," Lucas tweeted Tuesday.
