The closing date for Great British Bake Off 2021 Applications is 23.59pm on Sunday 6th December 2020.

Note that the audition process for Bake Off is a lengthy one and the form is just the very first step.

If your application is accepted, you'll likely to be invited to take part in a phone interview. After that, according to former bakers, it's off to London with some of your bakes for another interview and screen test.

Finally, you may face a real life technical challenge in front of the camera - although it won't be aired - before the final bakers are chosen for the series.

Here's what Bake Off makers Love Productions are looking for in the contestants: "When selecting applicants for the Programme Love Productions will, amongst other factors take into account: skill, enthusiasm, drive and love of baking. Love Productions is looking for lively characters that are comfortable being filmed.

They add: "Love Productions will be looking for a mix of contestants to reflect the range in age, location, gender and diversity of amateur bakers in Britain."

The series will air next autumn on Channel 4.
