Of course, Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith are back in the tent for their traditional Christmas get-together of judging.

The former contestants competing in this festive episode include Liam Charles and 71-year-old Flo Atkins from GBBO 2017.

Adorable gran Flo was a firm fan favourite during her stint on GBBO and we can’t wait to see her back on the telly.

There’s also a return for 63-year-old Jane Beedle and the ever-animated Andrew Smyth, who were runners-up in 2016.

Finally, there’s also a musical performance to top it all off.

British rockers The Darkness will blow the roof off the tent with a performance of their holiday smash hit Christmas Time.

Could it get any more Christmassy than this?
