Prue, 80, joined the programme upon its move to Channel 4 back in 2016 and quickly became a firm favourite amongst viewers for her honest critique and eye-catching wardrobe.
However, due to her age, it was alleged the programme was unable to get insurance for the star with the current situation in mind.
The show is reluctant to leave Prue out and bosses have been trying to work out how she can still be part of this year’s programme.
In terms of the programme’s location, it was originally reported Bake Off had booked out an entire Centre Parcs to film proceedings but talks later broke down.
However, it is believed the broadcaster has now found a new top-secret venue where they will be able to film the series.
Express Online has contacted a Great British Bake Off representative for comment.
Great British Bake Off is due to return later this year to Channel 4.
