The Great British Bake Off to air on Channel 4 from August 29th
After all the high drama of last year as Channel 4 bought the rights to The Great British Bake Off from the BBC, fans will finally get to see whether the new format, adverts and all, will actually work when the show returns this month. Channel 4 has confirmed that series eight will make its debut at 8pm on Tuesday 29th August.
The show features new judges Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig. Paul Hollywood has followed the show as original judge, but Mary Berry has stayed behind, replaced this time by new judge Prue Leith.
Interestingly the show is going to go up against BBC2's The Big Family Cooking Showdown, which features former The Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain, co-hosting alongside Zoe Ball. Coincidence? We think not.
