The Great British Bake Off 1/10 (Wednesday 6 August)



The Great British Bake Off returns with 12 new contestants ready to test their baking expertise.
This year we welcome the tent’s youngest ever baker and the oldest... All 12 bakers will be challenged on their baking skills from every angle by judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood, all the while helped – or hindered – by Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins. But their first hurdle is cake.

Entering the tent for the very first time, their first Signature Challenge is to make a Swiss Roll. But with such a seemingly simple challenge comes a risk: who will have the tightest roll? Whose roll will split? Should the bakers go for the classic or push the boat out to impress?

Recovering from their first challenge, they face their first ever Technical Challenge. It’s cake week… It’s a Mary recipe… It’s a classic cherry cake. But will the bakers be able to suspend the cherries and ice their cakes to the exacting standard of Ms Berry?

As the next day dawns so does the Showstopper of the series. The bakers must make classic British cakes… in perfect miniature… all 36 of them…

Thirty challenges, 12 brand-new bakers, two judges and two presenters, but there can only be one winner.
