A pastor, a hairdresser, a nurse and an aerospace engineer are among those who will be seen competing for this year’s Great British Bake Off crown.
Viewers will see 12 amateur bakers trying to impress judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood when the new series of Great British Bake Off began on BBC One in August.
This series will be the last on BBC with news announced that the show will switch to Channel 4 in 2017. Only judge Paul Hollywood staying with the show. Judge Mary Berry and hosts by Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins will quit the show and remain with the BBC. Mel and Sue famously quoted with the pun; “We’re not going with dough!”
The 2015 series (above) was immensely popular with huge TV ratings. It was won by Nadiya Hussain. Ian Cumming and Tamal Ray were runners up.
GBBO won a Rose d’Or in the Lifestyle section of the 2012 competition. It also won two 2015 National Television Award for Skills Challenge Show. The programme won BAFTA awards in 2012, 2013, and 2016.
Production company Love Productions have been heavily criticised for the decision to leave BBC and head to C4 in 2017.
