THE Great British Bake Off returns this autumn and fans of the Channel 4 series do not have to wait long for the famous white tent to be pitched.
If you are chomping at the biscuit to find out who will follow in the footsteps of previous winners like Rahul Mandal and Sophie Faldo, we have all the latest news on Bake Off 2019 right here…
When does The Great British Bake Off 2019 start and how long will it run for?
I’m afraid we don’t have an official start day for The Great British Bake Off 2019, but we do know it will be August.
In 2018 it started on August 28, and with this in mind, it could kick off at 8pm on Channel 4 on August 27, 2019 – as it always starts on a Tuesday.
The show will run for 10 consecutive weeks.
The final is likely to be on November 5, 2019 – but this is also still to be confirmed.
Who won The Great British Bake off 2018?
Research scientist Rahul Mandal, 32, was the 2018 Bake Off winner.
He overcame two disasters – an icing explosion and shattered mixing bowl – in the final to win the show.
After winning the show Rahul was signed as a columnist for The Times Magazine, as part of their Saturday supplement.
You can also find him regularly cooking on This Morning.
In 2018, Rahul also became a Stem (Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) ambassador to “help inspire the next generation of engineers”.
Who is in the line-up for The Great British Bake Off announced?
Channel 4 are yet to let on when the official line-up for season 10 will be revealed.
However, we do know that applications to take part in the upcoming series took place earlier this year, with producers of the show having contacted those successful in February.
But given that the show is looking to return THIS MONTH (August) we’re not too far away from getting the official word from Channel 4.
