The GREAT BRITISH BAKE OFF is the ultimate baking battle where passionate amateur baking fans compete to be crowned the UK’s Best Amateur Baker. Now you could be part of the next series.

Over the course of 10 hour-long episodes, the series follows the trials and tribulations of the competitors, young and old, from every background and every corner of Britain, as they attempt to prove their baking prowess. Each week the bakers tackle a different baking skill, which become progressively more difficult as the competition unfolds.

Any fan of the series know how the show works. Theres three parts, sandwiched together to make a difficult, fun programme, filled with team team of regular hosts and baking experts.


Testing the bakers’ personality, creative flair and baking ability, the main challenge here is to produce something cute, rustic and altogether home-made-looking. It’s in this test that the Bakers get to show off their tried-and-tested handcooked bites.


This challenge separates the wheat from the chaff. Take one basic recipe, with the same ingredients and instructions, and ask our bakers to produce the finished product… sound easy? Well, any variation on the finished product will be a result of their own technical knowledge and experience – or lack of. Bakers are laid bare in this task and this is where the pressure’s really on in the Bake Off.


The oven gloves are off in this final challenge where the bakers are able to showcase their depth of skill and talent. The complexities of this task call for a professional standard in taste and appearance. Are they up to it? The judges will be looking for the most impressive and elaborate creations – that better taste first-class too.

The judges are headed up by PAUL HOLLYWOOD and PRUE LEITH, two of our best know culinary experts. And the presenters are equally well know, as much for their brilliant chemistry together, as their individual comedic talents. NOEL FIELDING and MATT LUCAS go together as well as strawberry jam and clotted cream on a fruit scone.
