The Great British Bake Off

A fresh batch of bakers are hoping to impress Mary and Paul at the gingham altar…

All is right with the world again as Mary and Paul, and cheeky imps Mel and Sue, are back in TV’s most famous tent.

The 12 new bakers range from a retired headteacher to an aerospace engineer, and some are already dreaming of getting the ‘Hollywood handshake’, although they might have a long wait!

Events kick off with Cake Week and, as Mel says, there’s ‘added presh’ because they start with Paul’s favourite cake, while Mary omits timings for a fiendish technical challenge. After a super-tough showstopper, who will be the first star baker and who will be the first to leave the competition?
