Great British Bake Off back on BBC this Christmas with final festive special

The Great British Bake Off 2015

The Great British Bake Off 2016's final series may be over on BBC One but there is still MORE from the show to come.

Wednesday saw the Great British Bake Off 2016 winner crowned in a tense final, as the last ever BBC series concluded.

However there will still be two two festive specials airing later this year before Channel 4 take over for good.

Mary, Paul, Mel and Sue will be back for one VERY LAST time together as they get into the festive spirit with 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, 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 commissioned for BBC One to air over the 2016 festive period.

The exact air dates will be confirmed later on in the year.

The Great British Bake Off will move to Channel 4 next year in a new three-year-deal.
