This instalment sees the bakers face three “yummy yuletide challenges”. Then, in order to maximise those festive tent decorations, Channel 4 is bringing us a second episode featuring Benjamina Ebuehi, Rob Billington, Rav Bansal and Sandy Docherty.

The only detail that we know about their bakes is that they will all have to make “something to celebrate in three delectable challenges”.

With this in mind, we’re predicting New Year’s Eve party food and celebratory nibbles.

The stockings say it all. Judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith will be back in the tent alongside presenters Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig. Based on the snazzy clobber sported by Noel and Sandi last series, we can only predict they’ll be rocking some truly jazzy Christmas jumpers in the tent this December.
