Great British Bake Off start date and news from the new series on Channel 4

When does Great British Bake Off start on TV? Series 10 on its way!


Great British Bake Off 2019 is returning to Channel 4 but when is it back on TV and who are the judges and hosts?

Here we round up all the latest news and rumours about the Great British Bake Off 2019 on Channel 4 this year.

It'll be the tenth series of Bake Off overall and the fourth to air on Channel 4.

Great British Bake Off start date

The air date for the Great British Bake Off 2019 has yet to be announced but it usually begins on TV on the last Tuesday of August.

That'd make this year's GBBO launch date on August 27, although Channel 4 has not officially confirmed this.

Just as with the recent Channel 4 series since the move from BBC One, it's expected episodes will air weekly for 75 minutes between 8PM and 9:15PM.

Great British Bake Off 2018 judges and hosts

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

It'll be their third year together on the show since the series moved from BBC One in 2017.

Meanwhile, GBBO hosts Sandi Toksvig OBE and Noel Fielding will also be back to join judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood.

Sandi Toksvig OBE said: “It is an extraordinary honour to be part of this national treasure of a show. Noel Fielding is one of the nicest guys in show business. The first time I met him I felt like I had met a rather wayward cousin whose take on the world made me laugh. The only down side is that he has much better dress sense that I do."

Noel Fielding added: "GBBO is one of my favourite shows. I’ve always loved brightly coloured cakes and Sandi Toksvig so this is a dream come true for me!"

Bake Off to air until 2021

Ahead of the new series, Channel 4 has confirmed it will continue to host Bake Off until at least 2021.

Channel 4 and programme makers Love Productions have confirmed a new two series agreement for The Great British Bake Off.

In addition, it's also been announced that for the first time Junior Bake Off - a new 15-part spin off to the main show - will be broadcast on Channel 4.

Three new series will be made by Love Productions – the first will air on Channel 4 later in 2019.
