In the 40-second clip, we see a new cohort of apron-donning bakers take to the tent to sieve, stir and whip their way into Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith’s hearts.
Fans are also given a first-look at brand new host Matt Lucas (who replaced Sandi Toksvig in March) as he learns the ropes, including what he is and isn’t meant to eat from the contestants’ cakes.
The trailer teases moments throughout the upcoming series, which begins on Channel 4 next week, from lumpy sponges and bone-dry bakes, to disastrous attempts and scary-looking showstoppers.
It also looks as though the contestants will be taking on the Battenberg in the first episode, judging by the trailer’s sneak peek at the baker’s first efforts in the tent.
Earlier today, Channel 4 announced the line-up of Great British Bake Off contestants who’ll be taking on various culinary challenges week after week, from an armoured guard to a bronze resin sculpture.
This year’s series was filmed throughout July and August in a self-contained biosphere for six weeks to ensure all cast and crew members were safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
