Bake Off's Paul Hollywood reveals 'spectacular' new twists and challenges as hit show returns TONIGHT | The Sun

THE Great British Bake Off judge Paul Hollywood has revealed a tasty new twist to the iconic foodie series.

The famous baker, 56, opened up on one of the many show firsts for the Channel 4 series – which begins today, at 8pm.

Paul was quizzed by Best Magazine: What new developments are there?"

The bread king candidly replied: "Mexican week was one of my favourites because the challenges are spectacular.

"What they created was very very good – on a par with what I had in Mexico only a couple of weeks before making Paul Hollywood Eats Mexico."

Amongst this exciting new addition, viewers at home will also be able to see the bakers take on patisserie week, free from week and fan favourite bread week.

Fellow judge Prue Leith told the same publication her favourite was "Custard Week"as it "went into all sorts of concoctions."

Meanwhile, Paul added of Halloween Week: "If you think of apples, you won't be far off one of the challenges."

The ratings winner is back for its 13th outing and is returning back to its long-running home of Welford Park having been set elsewhere for the past two years as a result of Covid restrictions.  

Fans of the long-running show will be delighted to see the show back in its original home with judge Paul previously admitting it was ’emotional’ to be back.

He admitted: "I love filming at Welford and we’ve been away for a couple of years,” he explained.

"I sat on the grass, not far from the tents. It’s a very reflective place and Bake Off’s been a big part of my life for quite a while now.

"It’s lovely being back. I felt totally chilled out and relaxed.”

The new series marks Prue’s sixth as a judge on the show after she took over the role from Dame Mary Berry in 2017 when the show moved from BBC One to Channel 4.

Last week the brand new bakers competing for the title of Star Baker were unveiled with the most diverse line-up to date.
