This year, under exceptional circumstances, the twelve new bakers entered a bubble for seven weeks in order to make the competition happen.
The iconic tent remains the same, but there are 30 brand new challenges set by Judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith.
Hosts Noel Fielding and Matt Lucas kick off the series with Cake Week. First, in the signature, the bakers get the opportunity to put their twist on the classic Battenberg.
Next, under the gingham cloth are the ingredients for the first technical; turning out a fruit sponge, that’s one of Paul’s favourites.
Finally, a showstopper that gives the bakers a chance to express their creativity, as they pay tribute to their heroes. An opportunity for the judges to see what inspires this year’s bakers, and whether they have the skills to translate it into cake.
Twelve bakers in the bubble. Three challenges. Only one will be crowned star baker, and sadly one will be going home.
