Following the success of The Great British Bake Off, The Great British Sewing Bee kicked off in 2013. The BBC show returned for its eighth series in April 2022. Twelve contestants compete each week in crafty and creative challenges.
This year The Great British Sewing Bee is filmed at Sunny Bank Mills just outside of Leeds and the 12 contestants are being whittled down pretty quickly ready for the winner to be revealed on June 29th. Over the course of the competition, viewers have gotten acquainted with the sewers and some are scratching their heads over who Annie’s boyfriend is…
