Judging by previous years, the competition is likely to run for ten weeks until October.
Is there a trailer?
Yes, there is. A typically zany trailer sees a rush on supermarkets as people prepare for Bake Off, with one woman even praying to a portrait of Paul Hollywood in the hope of getting a golden handshake…
Who are the judges on Bake Off?
Judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith are back for 2019, with Paul getting in the Bake Off spirit by sharing this sugary-sweet Mad Hatter-inspired tea party snap.
The entire series of The Great British Bake Off – including the final – is recorded a long time in advance. This means that every year the competition is shrouded in secrecy… that is, until Prue Leith accidentally reveals the winner early on Twitter.
In previous years, every April, the tent is erected for ten weeks, and each episode is filmed over the course of a weekend. The bakers stay at nearby hotels, arriving at 9am on Saturday mornings and returning home during the week.
