It’s become a staple of the festive season, and now the Great British Bake Off crew are back for another special this New Year.


While we tuck into the remaining mince pies at home, a fresh group of contestants will battle it out in the famous tent as they try to impress judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood with their offerings.

This January, four bakers will return to the Bake Off tent as they take on a Signature, Technical and Showstopper challenge, in the hope of being named Star Baker at the end of the episode.
