“I didn't expect to enjoy Kiell as host of #sewingbee but I did. It was nice to have someone less manic this series and let the contestants and their work do the talking,” wrote another fan, with a third adding: “Kiell's great. 4 presenters and they haven't had a bad one yet tbh #SewingBee.”

“Loving The Great British Sewing Bee's return as always. But my fav thing was Kiell Smith-Bynoe he is my fav host by far, not trying too hard to be funny & failing just being natural! #SewingBee,” surmised one fan.
