The Great British Bake Off was at the centre of a backlash when it controversially moved from the BBC to Channel 4.
The show’s move caused a lot of upset amongst fans of the show (us included) and we’ve been scouring the news daily to find out all the details of the new series.
With The Great British Bake Off’s premiere on Channel 4 almost here, we thought it was time to round up all the information you need to know!
When will The Great British Bake Off start on Channel 4?
There was a lot of speculation that suggested we wouldn’t see any new series of The Great British Bake Off until 2018. That’s proven not to be true and The Great British Bake Off will make its debut on Channel 4 at 8pm on Tuesday 29th August 2017.
How long will each episode of The Great British Bake Off be?
On the BBC The Great British Bake Off aired for 1 hour per week on a Wednesday. On Channel 4 the show will air for 75 minutes on a Tuesday. This allows the show to keep all the content in each episode and makes allowances for the advert breaks, of which there are three each week.
Have there been any big changes to The Great British Bake Off now it’s on Channel 4?
Not really. Apart from the presenters and judges (more on that below) the show will be sticking to the format we all know and love. The innuendo is still there, the three challenges per week and the mix of baking triumphs and disasters!
Who will present The Great British Bake Off?
When Mel & Sue decided not to move to Channel 4, we seriously wondered if we would bother watching the new series. Channel 4 have gone for a bit of a random combination choosing Sandi Toksvig and comedian Noel Fielding to present the show.
Who are The Great British Bake Off judges?
Mary Berry decided not to make the move to Channel 4 but Paul Hollywood did sign on for the new series. He will be joined by Prue Leith who is a restaurateur, caterer, television presenter/broadcaster, businesswoman, journalist, cookery writer and novelist.
