Bake Off 2020 week one – what is the theme this week?

LET'S GET BAKING

THE Great British Bake Off is back with a brand new series as the contestants look to impress the judges with their baking abilities.

Judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith return, as well as the introduction of new host Matt Lucas, who will co-present alongside previous host Noel Fielding following Sandi Toksvig's departure.

What is the theme this week?

The series will kick off the first episode with Cake Week.

The bakers will be set several challenges which will be based entirely around cake.

What are they making tonight?

The bakers will be able to use their own recipes in the signature challenge based around the popular battenburg cake.

The technical challenge for the bakers, who will not know about this until they arrive in the tent, will be a fruit sponge.

The final task of each episode will involve the the Showstopper Challenge, which will give participants the chance to express their originality and creativity.

When is Bake Off 2020 on TV?

The first episode of Great British Bake Off 2020 will air on Channel 4 on Tuesday 22 September at a revised time of 8.15pm.

The bakers were selected by April of this year, but due to the coronavirus restrictions put in place, it meant that the filming schedule had to be rewritten, with this year’s series hitting TV screens a month later than usual.

New series of the Great British Bake Off is filthier than ever with ‘boob cakes’ and Prue Leith declaring ‘I like baked helmet’
