Here's how to watch The Great British Bake Off 2020 online...
The Great British Bake Off is back on our screens for a brand new series, continuing with 80s week. Here’s how to watch The Great British Bake Off online anywhere in the world.
Socially distanced filming isn’t the only change for the 2020 helping of our favourite baking show, because new face Matt Lucas has joined the gang, replacing Sandi Toksvig.
Little Britain star, Matt, has teamed up with Noel Fielding to present the show, while hard-to-please judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood are back to cast their critical eyes over the Victoria sponges.
Amazingly, the eleventh series of The Great British Bake Off – which is currently on Channel 4 – managed to kick off filming despite lockdown restrictions. Episode seven, which is being shown on Tuesday 3rd November at 8pm, has a 1980s theme.
The judges want the bakers to reimagine ice-cream cakes – and this is a bigger challenge than you might think as the tent is apparently boiling hot!
The 12 new contestants hoping to avoid any soggy bottoms are armoured guard Dave, accountants Makbul and Hermine, sculptor Marc and digital manager Laura.
Also joining them in the tent is project manager Mark, retirement living team manager Linda, student Peter, radiographer Loreia, music teacher Rowan, pantomime producer Lottie and pharmacy dispenser, Sura.
Don’t miss out on the baking delights – here’s how to watch The Great British Bake Off online even if you’re not in the UK.
