Comedians Sandi Toksvig (QI) and Noel Fielding (The Mighty Boosh) will host Britain’s biggest baking competition, while restaurateur and food writer Prue Leith joins Paul Hollywood as a judge.
The news comes after it was announced last autumn that the blockbuster baking show would be moving from BBC One to Channel 4.
Meet the twelve contestants competing for the title of Britain’s best amateur baker this year:
Andrew is a Northern Irish aerospace engineer who is currently living in Derby. When he’s not designing jet engines, he’s pushing the boundaries of baking to create complex edible structures – his next project is a Concorde made out of baguettes.
It's often said that food brings people together, and this year's GBBO wannabes are testament to that.
The dozen promising patissiers include a body builder, a fire fighter and, most surprisingly, the Dalai Lama's personal photographer.
Brace yourselves: the much-loved baking show is set to burst onto our screens for a sixth series.
Twelve of the country’s best amateur bakers are getting set for a battle of the bakes hosted by loveable duo Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins.
Over ten weeks, the wannabe bakers will face the test by Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood.
Producers have already teased us with a clip paying homage to Sound of Music with Mary Berry channeling her inner Julie Andrews on a field.
