Who are the Great British Bake Off contestants?

We are so excited to meet the new contestants set to wow us with their baking.

There will be 12 new bakers entering the famous tent, all of which have a range of professions.

Lottie, 31, is a pantomime producer from West Sussex, and 55 year old Rowan is a music teacher from Worcestershire.

You’ll also get to know Diagnostic Radiographer Loriea, 27, and Armoured Guard Dave from Hampshire.

Who are the Great British Bake Off judges and presenters?

The question on everyone’s lips of course is will there be Paul Hollywood handshakes being handed out this year?

The answer? Yes there will be, as Paul is set to return alongside Prue Leith to judge the bakers.

Sadly, Sandi Toksvig announced she was quitting after three years as host, but we’ll still have the wonderful Noel Fielding bringing the humour to the tent, with a new presenter to accompany him!

Comedian Matt Lucas will also be joining GBBO as a presenter, a job which he’s said he’s “chuffed to bits” about.

What else do you need to know?

Well that’s about it! However, if you’re hungry for more – and who can blame you – there’s a teaser trailer available to watch.

In it, we see a very sweet ending where a boy sits down with his grandma after gifting her a bag of flour.

The show is starting super soon, on Tuesday 22 September at 8pm. Production rapped in August with the show being filmed earlier this year.

Let the baking begin!
