Just a few hours to go until it’s time to get ready, set, bake!
Twelve new contestants will be donning their aprons, rolling up their sleeves and doing their best to impress the judges as The Great British Bake Off 2016 gets underway.
And with the focus on cakes tonight, it’s no surprise that June, Tina and Sue will be joining millions of viewers across the country glued to the TV to find out what this year’s amateur bakers will be facing.
Whose buns will come out on top? Will there be any soggy bottoms? And above all, will there be chocolate?!
Rumour has it that things don’t go too well for some of the contestants, with four of them forced to ditch their cakes and start their recipes from scratch in the showstopper challenge. It sounds as though there may be a few tears and tantrums in the Bake Off tent tonight…
On their own show this Sunday, the Girls Around Town will be turning the spotlight on the phenomenon that is GBBO. They’ll be making some early predictions about favourites for this year’s title and looking at some of the reasons why a massive 15 million viewers tuned in to see Nadiya Hussain take the 2015 title last October. What’s the betting Mr Hollywood features on their list?!
