The end of summer is almost upon us, and we don’t even care. Why? Because with the arrival of a new season comes a brand new series of The Great British Bake Off.
Arriving quicker than Paul Hollywood’s withering judgements, the Great British Bake Off is set to return to Channel 4 on Tuesday, August 28.
That’s a mere 13 days away, cake-eaters.
Following on from Channel 4’s first trailer for the new series, Bake Off unveiled its return with a short clip on Twitter today (August 15), complete with that ever-comforting GBBO music.
While the music is the same as it’s ever been for Bake Off‘s second series in its new home, fans can expect some changes to this year’s recipe when it returns.
Bake Off constant Paul Hollywood recently revealed that the show would be going “back to basics” for the latest series, after getting “a bit over-complicated” in previous years.
“Sometimes it’s not just about the bakers in the tent, it’s about the people in the UK who watch the programme,” he explained. “We want to encourage the viewers to bake.
“And it’s worked, thus far. Everyone’s got the baking bug, at some level.”
It’s not just the bakers who will be under less pressure this time around – new presenting duo Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig will be more relaxed too.

“We were under an enormous amount of pressure to not ruin this sacred show that everyone loved,” Noel said of his and Sandi’s debut series. “So we weren’t as worried about the bakers, we were just trying to make sure we didn’t destroy our own careers.”
Great British Bake Off finally returns on Tuesday, August 28 at 8pm on Channel 4.
