Bake Off producers to search for Britain’s best potter

The makers of The Great British Bake Off are hoping to repeat their success with another show – this time about potters.

Britain’s Best Potter will screen on BBC Two and is currently on the hunt for contestants.

A call for participants was tweeted by the Devon Guild of Craftsmen.

Promising to put each potter’s entire repertoire of skills to the test, an application deadline has been set for Sunday, January 4.

Britain’s Best Potter is the latest in a string of programmes that have spun off from the Bake Off format, which have included The Great British Sewing Bee, The Big Allotment Challenge, The Great Interior Design Challenge and Hair.
