The Great British Bake Off Starts Next Week — Meet the Newest Amateur Bakers
Bake Off is back! We might be sad to say goodbye to the summer we never had, but the darker nights and colder mornings can only mean one thing: The Great British Bake Off is returning to our screens — very soon.
Kicking off on 21 Sept., Season 12 welcomes 12 amateur bakers into the tent to show off their skills in technical bakes and showstoppers competing to earn the coveted title of Star Baker. Expect a talented bunch, too, because judge Paul Hollywood revealed, "it's certainly the highest I've ever encountered". As with previous years, Hollywood is joined by fellow judge Prue Leith and returning copresenters Noel Fielding and Matt Lucas. The Great British Bake Off season 12 adopted the same format as last season in following strict COVID-19 protocols and keeping all of the contestants in a bubble together whilst filming.
Among the bakers is a Met Police detective, software developer, midwife, and sales manager — let's meet the people battling it out to be crowned Britain's best amateur baker of 2021.
The Great British Bake Off returns to our screens on 21 Sept. on Channel 4 and will air at 8 p.m. each week
