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.

October 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 the 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 first will be broadcast at 4.45PM on BBC One on Christmas Day.

The show is then repeated at 11:30AM on Boxing Day ahead of the second show at 7PM later that evening.

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