Great British Bake Off receives an air date and trailer – watch


Get out your rolling pins and muffin pans – BBC One has confirmed that The Great British Bake Off will be back in a fortnight!

It was confirmed yesterday (22nd July) that the sixth series of the baking competition will launch on Wednesday, 5th August at 8pm on BBC One.

Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins will return once again as hosts, while Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry will be judging the baking delights that this year’s contestants produce. Last year’s final reached a record 12.3 million viewers as Nancy Birtwhistle was crowned the 2015 Bake Off Champion.

The announcement arrives after the release of  a Sound of Music themed trailer that has to be seen to be believed. The trailer sees Mary Berry singing in a field, Paul Hollywood singing into a baguette and Mel and Sue salivating over some hunger-inducing cakes.

Watch the trailer below.
