Paul and Prue

We’ve had 10 years of Bake Off drama, with several soggy bottoms, lots of tasty bakes and a whole Baked Alaska in the bin – but there’s still plenty of baking left to be done.

Yes, the Great British Bake Off will be back for round 11 in 2020, which will likely see more tears, innuendos and Hollywood handshakes for a fresh batch of bakers.

Here’s all your questions for the new series answered…

When is The Great British Bake Off on TV?

The Great British Bake Off will return to Channel 4 in 2020, most likely in the late summer/early Autumn slot it has occupied for the past three years.

Unless there’s any huge changes in schedule, we can predict Bake Off will return to Channel 4 on Tuesday 25th August, likely in the same 8pm time slot.

For now, however, you can catch up on Bake Off series 10 on All4, or you can watch classic series of Bake Off from the good old BBC days on Netflix.

Who are the bakers in the line-up?
