Our summer diets will probably go out the window tonight after watching the new series of The Great British Bake Off!

Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc return to host the cake, bread and tart making extravaganza, and they even get to sample some of the creations on display – lucky things.

First up Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood challenge the bakers' dozen to make a simple sandwich cake – but of course they don't really want a simple one, they wants something different and original. Who will come up with a tasty treat?

Next they have to make one of Mary's recipes and finally a show-stopping chocolate cake. After the three challenges, someone will be sent home – who won't be up to scratch?
