The new season has introduced twelve of the best home bakers in the UK to the show, going on a journey to ice, knead, whisk, bake and beat their way through 10 weeks of testing challenges.

At the end of each week judges Prue and Paul will decide who’s leaving the tent and who is the week’s star baker.

Tonight during Biscuit Week, the remaining bakers embark on a Signature challenge centred around marshmallows, drawing inspiration from beloved childhood treats.

Following that, they tackle a Technical challenge recipe featuring a custard classic.

To conclude, the bakers face an illusion-themed Showstopper where they craft their cherished meals using biscuits.

The suspense builds as we await the revelation of the star baker and the fate of the contestant who will crumble under the pressure and bid farewell to the tent.

Watch all the latest action in the tent and see who is eliminated when GBBO 2023 returns this evening at 8PM on Channel 4.

Alongside the main show spin-off series The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice returns with Jo Brand, airing on Friday nights on Channel 4.
