An entertaining and exciting search to find and crown Britain's best amateur baker.
Renowned food writer Mary Berry and professional baker Paul Hollywood set 12 passionate bakers a series of challenges in different disciplines, designed to test every aspect of their skills and showcase the exacting science behind the art of baking.
Taking on some of the most terrifying tasks of the kitchen, the contestants go all out to impress the judges as they battle for a place in the final and the chance to become The Great British Bake Off winner.
Who will sink like a second-rate soufflé? And who will deliver enough mouth-watering bites to be crowned the next Bake Off champion?
They'll be tears, they'll be tension, and there may even be a soggy bottom or two.
On your marks… get set… bake!
