Bake Off is back for another of their ‘Professionals’ series from Tuesday, May 26th.
The hit baking series will return at 8 pm with twelve new teams ready to compete. There will be two heats, each with six teams of bakers. The competition will whittle down the groups, week by week, until there is just one winning team left.
The Professional series sees the crème de la crème of Britain’s baking scene compete for the title of Bake Off champions. This season will see Liam Charles, Cherish Finden, Benoit Blin and comedian Tom Allen back in the Bake Off tent making the all-important decisions.
