A new Great British Bake Off series has been confirmed, meaning life suddenly feels brighter than a Paul Hollywood tan.

The real question is: when is GBBO on?

This is everything we know so far.

When is Great British Bake Off On?

The official return date has been announced!

Great British Bake Off will return to our screens on Tuesday 28th August.

Are you ready for a whole season of gorgeous cakes (and the couple of times they do savoury, but who really cares about that?)

What Channel is GBBO on?

You may remember the huge national scandal when Auntie Beeb let the show go.

People wept in the streets. Mel and Sue and Mary had to get other jobs.

Still, after a very successful time in 2017, Channel 4 is once again the home of Great British Bake Off.

What Time is Great British Bake Off?

GBBO will be on at 8 pm.

Just the right time to make you hungry again after your tea.

 

Remember though, the show runs longer than it used to on BBC One. With ad breaks included, it runs until 9.15pm. Followed right after by First Dates Hotel.

Who Are the Bake Off Presenters?

Paul Hollywood remains in place, the one man to leap from BBC to Channel 4.

Joining him is Danish delight Sandi Toksvig, baking savant Prue Leith, and resident odd dude Noel Fielding.

There’s always a risk that programmes will mess with their winning formula, but all four judges will be back. And Channel 4 have a little video to confirm that, just in case you were worried.

What is the Great British Bake Off?

The short version: a bunch of people in a tent, baking things. The best bakers go through to the final and win the overall competition.

The longer version: the show is the country’s comfort blanket. A soft, cheerful show with low stakes and mouth-watering desserts. There are tears, laughter, unfortunate baking accidents, and some quiet but fierce competition.

People are generally lovely and don’t get too mean, although the judges can have some harsh criticism when it’s needed.

It’s your television happy place. Bad things don’t happen here. Or at least nothing much worse than a collapsed flan.
