The QI and Great British Bake Off host is the face of a new online course

Television host Sandi Toksvig has spoken openly about her views as a humanist, and her role as patron to the non-religious organisation Humanists UK.

The out QI and Great British Bake Off presenter is the face of a new course called “Introducing Humanism: Non-religious Approaches to Life” on the free online learning portal, FutureLearn.

Speaking about a video introducing the course, Sandi explains: “We live in an increasingly pluralistic world. We are surrounded by a diversity of beliefs.”

“Today, an increasing number of people are not religious. Many believe that the universe is a natural phenomenon with no supernatural side. They believe that this is the one life we have. And they want to lead ethical, meaningful, and fulfilling lives. People like humanists.

“I’m Sandi Toksvig. I’m a humanist, and I’m a patron of Humanists UK. I’m fascinated by life’s big questions.

“Questions like, ‘How should I live?’, ‘How can I know what is true?’, ‘How should I treat others?’, and ‘What kind of world do I want?’”

FutureLearn bills the course as for anyone, “looking to develop their understanding of humanism.”
