The Great British Bake Off is back!

The Great British Bake Off is set to kick off its seventh series this Wednesday 24th August at 8pm on BBC1.

Last year 15 million people around the country tuned in to watch Nadiya take the crown as master baker – with all the highs of perfect bakes and lows of soggy bottoms in between.

This week a dozen new bakers will be back in the tent battling it out over the technical bakes and signature challenges – bringing plenty of flavour and variety with them for the new series. From the thrill of the competition to the relaxed pleasure of watching people bake, over the next 10 weeks we’re set for plenty of mouthwatering entertainment.

So let’s meet our new intake for 2016’s Great British Bake Off.

Thanks for voting!
I love being able to watch this show on our PBS station here in New Mexico. What challenges are presented to the participants. I love seeing all the variety of pastries you all have. Yuletide log was one of my favorites. Thanks for this show that takes so much effort to do I'm sure.
