The Great British Bake Off is to take over our screens once again as it settles into its new home on Channel 4. Fans of the nation’s favourite show are eagerly awaiting the upcoming series, which attracts viewers from the age of 18 to 80. This article will offer you all you need to know about the fabulous new presenters, the long-awaited judges and start date of the show.
Filming for the new series started in April, but Channel 4 hasn’t released the official start date yet, although it’s rumoured to be aired in Autumn. The only judge from the original team who has stayed and moved with the show to Channel 4 is Paul Hollywood, who will be partnered with the legendary Prue Leith to form the show’s judging panel. There was lots of speculation about who will follow in the footsteps of the famous pair Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins. Recently, Channel 4 announced the new hosts will be Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig. The Great British Bake Off will continue to be held in Berkshire in the original tent with the original theme music. The show begins by competing twelve hopefuls against each other with one being voted off each week. The baking enthusiasts partake in three challenges, the signature bake, the technical challenge and the show stopper. The judges will then offer their expert opinions and decide on who they think should be sent home.
There’s no way of knowing how fans will react to the show’s brand new presenters and judge, but the battle to be crowned the UK’s best amateur baker will hopefully produce some baking delights, as well as entertaining and inspiring us to delve into the baking frenzy.
