New to the series? Here's how the show works:
The Great British Baking Show is the ultimate baking battle, where passionate amateur baking fans compete to be crowned the UK's Best Amateur Baker. Over the course of 10 hour-long episodes, the series follows the trials and tribulations of the competitors, young and old, from every background and every corner of Britain, as they attempt to prove their baking prowess. Each week the Bakers tackle a different baking skill, which become progressively more difficult as the competition unfolds.
Judges Mary Berry & Paul Hollywood have created 30 challenges that will test their baking prowess, creativity and skill in a bid to find the country's best amateur Baker. From Victorian classics to high end patisserie, chocolate sculptures to everyday staples, the Bakers will need a cool head and even colder hands to make it to the final. With them every step of the way are Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins, ready to lend a hand or a shoulder to cry on.
Each episode has three distinct challenges:
This is where the Bakers get to really show their roots. The signature bake challenge is to produce something cute, rustic and homemade-looking, using a tried and tested recipe that shows off the Baker's personality.
Take one basic recipe, with the same ingredients and instructions, and ask our Bakers to produce the finished product… sound easy? Did we mention they have to be uniform? Any variation on the finished product will be a result of their own technical knowledge and experience – or lack of. Bakers are laid bare in this task. This is where the pressure's really on in the bake-off.
Taste and artistry join hands for the final challenge, where Bakers are able to showcase their depth of skill and talent. The complexities of this task call for a professional standard in taste and appearance. Are they up to it? The judges will be looking for the most impressive and elaborate creations – that better taste first-class too.
At the end of each episode, one Baker is awarded Star Baker status while another is sent home. Who will be the last Baker standing?
