Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins will also be back as hosts for the sixth series of the baking competition.

Last year, GBBO had more viewers than the summer's World Cup final! A huge 13.3 million watched Nancy Birtwhistle win the baking crown back in October, making it one of the most popular shows on TV today.

Paul previously said: "The class of 2014 have been exceptional and it has been an amazing reaction from viewers."
