Contestants on the Great British Bake Off 2017 tonight are aiming for pudding perfection.
Following last week’s first ever caramel challenges, this evening sees the eight remaining bakers given a Great British Bake Off face three more tricky tasks.
Restaurateur, food writer and novelist Prue Leith is once again joining Paul Hollywood as judge of The Great British Bake Off as it continues tonight on Channel 4.
And as always, Prue and Paul will be joined by new GBBO hosts Sandi Toksvig OBE and Noel Fielding.
They’ll be ready with a pertinent pep talk, a helpful hand or just a sympathetic shoulder to cry on, for what is series 8 of the cooking competition.
Over 10 weeks, the Great British Bake Off 2017 will see 12 of the best amateur bakers in Britain whisk, knead, ice, beat and bake their way through classic British cakes, perfect patisserie, Italian delights, sticky caramel constructions and elaborate layered puddings.
Tonight it’s week five of The Great British Bake Off and just eight bakers remain after last Tuesday’s fourth elimination.
It’s pudding week and Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood are looking for perfection. The signature challenge is a steamed favourite.
There’s a staggering technical challenge where timing is everything and a multi-layered showstopper that’s not to be trifled with.
Meanwhile, Sandi returns to Cambridge University, her old stomping ground, to discover the history of the college pudding.
As always, the three challenges will sort out the best bakers from those who are failing to make the grade.
At the end of it all, only one can claim star baker; while another contestant will leave the tent for good.
Who will be the next to leave the Great British Bake Off 2017?
The Great British Bake Off airs tonight at 8PM on Channel 4.
