The Great British Bake Off

BBC 1 at 8:00pm (Other show times...)

The Great British Bake Off

The baking challenge returns, as 12 new bakers don their aprons and head for the iconic tent.

Judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood have created 30 new challenges that will test their baking prowess, creativity and skill in a bid to find the country's best amateur baker. With them every step of the way are Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins, ready to lend a hand or a shoulder to cry on.

The bakers' first signature challenge is to make a madeira cake. It's a well-loved cake, but which of our bakers will try to impress by reinventing this classic, and who will play safe in a bid to get perfect madeira with its traditional crack? With one challenge out the way, the bakers face their first technical - Mary's frosted walnut cake, a pre-war classic that is as British as they come.

On day two, the bakers have to go all out to impress with their first showstopper, the black forest gateau.
