The official Twitter account for The Great British Bake Off has confirmed the start date for the new series.
The first episode will air on Channel 4 on Tuesday 21 September at 8.00pm.
The announcement follows last week’s teaser video captioned “Loaf is in the air... The Great British Bake Off. Coming Soon.”
Dramatically scored, the short video shows the tent pitched once again in the grounds of Welford Park in Newbury, Berkshire.
Noel Fielding will return to host with Matt Lucas, who joined the team for the last edition.
Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith will also return to judge the bakes, meaning the bakers will be competing for that all important Hollywood handshake.
Last year’s edition saw Peter Sawkins become the youngest ever winner in Bake Off’s history.
Loaf is in the air...
