The Great British Bake Off is finally here.

The nation's favourite baking competition would normally run from August until October, however filming was delayed due to coronavirus.

It'll run every Tuesday evening on Channel 4 for what's expected to be 10 weeks until one candidate is crowned winner.

This year, the twelve new bakers will be working closer than ever as they entered a bubble for seven weeks in order to make the competition happen.

But that's not the only change as Matt Lucas has replaced Sandi Toksvig as presenter alongside Noel Fielding.

Each week, the amateurs will battle it out with their best bakes to impress judges Prue and Paul.

There can only be one winner however, but what do they get for coming first in the baking competition?

What is the GBBO prize money?

While bakers put themselves through the heat, sweat and tears of the tent, as well as all the baking they do to practice, you'd think they'd get a huge cash sum as the icing on the cake.

Unfortunately not.

Last year's winner, David Atherton, scooped first prize. Alice Fevronia and Steph Blackwell finished as runners-up.

He won a glass cake stand, which doubles up as the trophy, along with a bunch of flowers - but no cash prize.

And neither did the previous winners before him.

Earning big sums of money is all down to how the winners spend their time after the show.

Many have gone on to do public appearances, write their own cook books, and other press events.

Atherton started writing a cookery column for The Guardian in 2020 on food for fitness. He also published his first book - My First Cookbook - in August.

Nadiya Hussain, GBBO 2015 winner, is probably the biggest success story of the show as she has hosted her own cooking show, as well as releasing a best-selling cook book.

She was also asked to bake the Queen's birthday cake when the monarch turned 90.

When will the Great British Bake Off final take place?

Series 11 is expected to run for 10 weeks. With this in mind, the Bake Off final will most likely air towards the end of November on Tuesday, November 24.

Final episodes usually run for one hour and 15 minutes, with the winner being announced just before the end following a tense bake-off.

Bake Off will first air at 8.15pm on September 22 on Channel 4.
