The former ‘Great British Bake Off’ host is jetting off the wild wilderness to film a three-part series exploring the area for Channel 5.

The 54-year-old comedian told the Sun newspaper’s TVBiz column: “Alaska is a wild and unknown place, so getting the chance to immerse myself in the diverse cultures and landscapes was an opportunity I couldn’t miss.

“I’ve always loved taking on new challenges and meeting people from all walks of life.

“I’m thrilled to be taking the Channel 5 audience on this Alaskan adventure with me.”

“I can’t wait to tune in . . .  from the comfort of home.”

An insider told the same outlet: “When TV explorers travel to extreme environments, everything is obviously treated with great care and attention in terms of safety, preparedness and respect for the environment.

“With that, though, everything can sometimes feel terribly earnest.

“There will be none of that for Into Alaska With Sue Perkins. Even sub-zero temperatures can’t put her distinctive sense of humour and quirky approach on ice.

“She’ll be landing in the ‘Great Land’ with little to no idea of what she’s in for, before going through necessary survival training then journeying deeper and deeper into the Alaskan wilderness.

“Sue comes across everything from beautiful yet dangerous wildlife to doomsday prepping, survivalist living and the incredible culture of Native Alaskan villages.”

Sue recently admitted that she is an “idiot” when it comes to love after splitting from her ex, the ‘Naked Attraction’ host Anna Richardson, 53.

She told the same newspaper in June: “I was in a very long-term happy thing, and obviously, we grew out of it, I guess.

“With me, it always ends in an exactly seven-year relationship. Yes, it’s weird. It’s between six-and-a-half and eight usually. I’m an idiot.”

“I’m a serial monogamist. I’m always in a relationship, so it doesn’t matter who I fancy, I’m with the person I’m with, and I want to be good to them — I’m not a philanderer.”
