Great British Bake Off 2017 first look: Watch trailer from the new series

The Great British Bake Off

Great British Bake Off 2017 is coming to Channel 4 and here's a first trailer.

It's the first series in a new three year deal with the channel after its move from the BBC One last year.

Restaurateur, food writer and novelist Prue Leith will be joining Paul Hollywood as judge of The Great British Bake Off when it hit screens later this year.

Paul Hollywood said: “I could not be more delighted by who will be joining me on the show. Prue is a hugely respected culinary legend and Sandi and Noel are warm and utterly hilarious.

"I cannot wait to get back in the tent with the bakers.”

Prue Leith added: “I am just so thrilled to be joining Paul, Sandi and Noel on the biggest show on TV and I cannot wait to see what the real stars of the show – the bakers – are going to create for us.

"It is such an honour to be part of The Great British Bake Off team."

Meanwhile, new GBBO hosts Sandi Toksvig OBE and Noel Fielding join judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood.

With those changes alone its no surprise that Channel 4 say the new series will have a different feel when it arrives on its new home.

"It's got a new tone to it; it's got a new comic riff to it and I think that feels modern and future-facing. So it's a show that a lot of people love but with a slight Channel 4 spin," teased Channel 4's big boss Jay Hunt.

However it's likely that they'll have a tough time winning over viewers who haven't exactly been excited about the prospect of the channel change.

Great British Bake Off start date

Great British Bake Off begins next Tuesday night (August 29) at 8PM on Channel 4.

As well as the main series, a Celebrity special is expected to air as part of Channel 4's Stand Up To Cancer month, which typically takes place in October.

Channel 4 has also confirmed that its episodes of Bake Off will run for 75 minutes, compared to 60 on BBC One, while The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice is returning with Jo Brand staying as host.
