Great British Bake Off spoilers: Bakers challenged liked never before in Bread week

great british 2017 bake off 1 2

Contestants face bread week on the Great British Bake Off 2017 tonight.

Following last week's game changing biscuit week challenges, this evening sees the ten remaining bakers given truly ambitious tasks for the classic bread week.


Restaurateur, food writer and novelist Prue Leith will be joining Paul Hollywood as judge of The Great British Bake Off as it continues tonight on Channel 4.

Prue and Paul will be joined by new GBBO hosts Sandi Toksvig OBE and Noel Fielding, 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 three of The Great British Bake Off and just 10 bakers remain after last Tuesday's second elimination.


It's Bread Week and the ten remaining bakers have a lot to prove to Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith with three increasingly tougher challenges.

It begins with a teacake signature, where they must rise to the challenge before a two-tiered technical takes them back to basics - but it's certainly not easy.

Then it's time for the third and final challenge: The most ambitious sculpture showstopper ever set in Bread Week.

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 9PM on Channel 4.
