"The Great British Bake Off" pits 10 amateur bakers against one another. They are gradually eliminated during rounds that take place in various locations around the country. Each episode features three different challenges relevant to a particular discipline and their efforts are judged by cookery writer Prue Leith and professional baker Paul Hollywood. Much-needed light relief is provided by presenters Noel Fielding and Matt Lucas. The first of six episodes originally premiered on BBC Two in 2010. An expanded series returned to the same channel the next year.
