THE GREAT BRITISH BAKING SHOW, the delectable baking competition that has grown into a beloved international phenomenon, returns for a fifth season this summer, featuring the original cast of Mary Berry, Paul Hollywood, Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc.
Once again, viewers will meet twelve of Britain’s best amateur bakers who will don their aprons, enter the iconic tent and tackle culinary trials that increase in difficulty as the competition unfolds. Vying to be crowned star baker, challengers prepare three creations in each episode: a signature bake, which tests their creative flair and baking ability; the devilishly difficult technical challenge, in which contestants have to bake creations using only ingredient lists and minimal instruction; and finally the showstopper, designed to fully showcase each baker’s skill and creativity.
