Great British Bake Off returning
DUST off the cake tins as the return date for The Great British Bake Off has been confirmed.
The popular Channel 4 baking series will be back on air on September 22 at 8pm.
A message alongside a photograph on the official Bake Off Instagram account said: “Put a little love in your tart. Join us on Tuesday 22nd September for the return of The Great British Bake Off!”.
This year’s show returns with comedian Matt Lucas replacing Sandi Toksvig as the programme’s co-host alongside Noel Fielding.
A new photo of Lucas for the series shows him balancing a cupcake on his head, as he stands alongside judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood, and Fielding.
A first-look trailer released at the beginning of the month referred to earlier days in lockdown when a key baking ingredient - flour - was a sought-after commodity.
