The Great British Bake Off air date confirmed

The new series will be out of the oven on Wednesday 5th August at 8pm on BBC1

On your marks, get set, BAKE! The Great British Bake Off will be back on our screens in exactly two weeks.


Paul Hollywood, Mary Berry, Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins will return to BBC1 on Wednesday 5th August at 8pm.

Twelve new bakers for series six will pit their mitts against the trickiest baking tasks Paul and Mary can throw at them, from shocking choux to devilish dough.

Last year’s series was the most-watched non-sporting show of the year, with 13.5 million tuning in to see Nancy Birtwhistle crowned champion.

And, judging by Mary’s musical tease for the latest series, the BBC are expecting this year’s Bake Off to hit all the right notes.
