he latest series will begin at 8pm on Tuesday 28 August, with Paul Hollywood, Prue Leith, Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding all returning to oversee this year's bakers dozen.

Paul recently said the new series will go back to basics, following viewer feedback that some of the challenges in more recent series had been a little bit too difficult.

He told The Guardian "This year we have gone back to basics on a couple, because we were getting a bit over-complicated. Sometimes it’s not just about the bakers in the tent, it’s about the people in the UK who watch the programme. We want to encourage the viewers to bake. And it’s worked, thus far. Everyone’s got the baking bug, at some level".
