Paul Hollywood, Matt Lucas, Prue Leith and Noel Fielding bring The Great British Bake Off back to screens in 2021 dressed up in mullets as a four-piece band. With a pretty off-the-wall opening, series 12 kicked off from Tuesday, September 21st and 12 new bakers entered the tent.
Jairzeno, Guiseppe, George, Lizzie and the rest of the bakers endured their first technical challenge and their first experience of the judges’ critique on Tuesday night. Here’s a look at where the 2021 show is being filmed – Where is Down Hall?
Where is The Great British Bake Off 2021 filmed?
As always, The Great British Bake Off is held inside the infamous baking tent. The 12 new contestants set up shop at their individual workstations inside.
In a GBBO Covid-free bubble, the contestants, judges and hosts of the show were able to film series 12.
As filming first started back in May 2021 tighter restrictions were in place during the Channel 4 show’s production.
