Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins are back to host a new series of The Great British Bake Off, with Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood returning as the judges.

Twelve new bakers are entering the tent from all walks of life – we've got the youngsters wanting to prove age doesn't matter when it comes to baking knowledge, and the older and wiser bunch who reckon it's all about experience.

It's cake week first up as they'll tackle a British classic in their first signature challenge taking them back to basics. Their technical is one of Mary's dishes with a popular fatless sponge and tricky chocolate work. Finally their showstopper must be sophisticated, high-end and nothing short of perfection to impress.

From biscuits to bread, patisserie to pastry, tarts to flans, Paul and Mary are looking for an all-rounder to be crowned Star Baker and make it through each week.
