When does The Great British Bake Off return?
The Great British Bake Off is one of the most popular shows on TV. With overnight viewing figures for the 2018 final standing at 7.5 million, the countdown is already on for series ten in August 2019.
There until The Great British Bake off returns.
A new batch of bakers will be entering the iconic tent in the hope of following in the footsteps of 2018 winner, Rahul Mandal, and previous successful winners such as Nadiya Hussain, John Waite and Frances Quinn.
The next series is likely to see the return of fan’s favourite Paul Hollywood as a judge, accompanied by Prue Leith, with Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding back as hosts.
History of Bake Off
The show first aired in 2010, with the first four series broadcast on BBC Two before its growing popularity saw it make the move over to BBC One for the next three series. Following the conclusion of the seventh season, the show’s production company signed a new deal which saw GBB move over to Channel 4.
Whilst on the BBC, the show was presented by Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc, with judges Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry. Only Paul Hollywood moved with the show to Channel 4, where he was joined by Leith, Toksvig and Fielding.
The Great British Bake Off has become a cultural institution and has been credited with reinvigorating the country’s love of baking. Competitors have gone on to great things after their time in the tent, fronting their own TV shows and releasing cook books, whilst the show’s popularity has led to spin-offs in the form Junior Bake Off for younger bakers and celebrity versions for Comic Relief and Stand Up To Cancer.
As soon as the each series ends, fans are already counting down to their next chance to watch amateur bakers attempt to replicate favourites from the around the world, so only time will tell to see how series ten’s incumbents get on.
