Great British Bake Off to get TWO Christmas specials this year

The Great British Bake Off 2015

Christmas is coming and Mary, Paul, Mel and Sue get into the festive spirit with two yuletide specials of The Great Christmas Bake Off.

Each episode, they welcome back four bakers from past series and ask them to don their Christmas jumpers and aprons to tackle three festive challenges.

As ever, our Christmas elves, Mel and Sue, will be spreading Christmas cheer throughout the tent, until, of course, the judging, where it's business as usual for Paul 'Scrooge' Hollywood and Mary 'Merry' Berry as they decide which of the four will be winner of The Great Christmas Bake Off.

Two, one hour episodes have been comissioned for BBC One to air over the 2016 festive period.

Charlotte Moore, Director, BBC Content, says: “What a treat to bring two Great British Bake Off specials to BBC One this Christmas. Mary, Paul, Mel and Sue are the perfect recipe for the festive season.”

Richard McKerrow, Creative Director of Love Productions, comments: “We’re excited to announce that there will be two specials of The Great Christmas Bake Off.

"What could be a better Christmas gift than welcoming back past bakers for a fun-filled festive Bake Off!”

The Great British Bake Off will air on BBC One later this summer.
