The series kicks off with Cake Week, and in their first Signature challenge the bakers get the opportunity to put their twist on the classic Battenberg. Next under the gingham cloth await the ingredients for the Technical challenge and one of Paul's favourites: turning out a fruit sponge.

Finally, the bakers pay tribute to their heroes in the Showstopper challenge, giving them a chance to express their creativity and an opportunity for the judges to see what inspires this year's bakers.

Three challenges. Three chances to win Star Baker. Three chances to avoid leaving the tent...

Hosted by Noel Fielding and Matt Lucas, The Great British Bake Off airs at 8PM on Tuesday nights on Channel 4.
