Bake Off 2019 start date confirmed – when is it back on and when will the line-up be released?

THE Great British Bake Off returns this month, with Channel 4 confirming the hit cooking show will be back in a matter of days.

If you are chomping at the biscuit to find out who will follow in the footsteps of previous winners like Rahul Mandal and Sophie Faldo, we have all the latest news on Bake Off 2019 right here.

When does The Great British Bake Off 2019 start and how long will it run for?

Channel 4 has confirmed The Great British Bake Off will return to the small screen this summer.

Show bosses shared the news via social media, announcing that the 2019 series will premiere on Tuesday, August 27, 2019.

The new series kicks off on Channel 4 at 8pm, much like the 2018 series which started on August 28.

Bake Off is expected to run for 10 consecutive weeks, with the final likely to be in November 2019.

Who won The Great British Bake off 2018?

Research scientist Rahul Mandal, 32, was the 2018 Bake Off winner.

He overcame two disasters - an icing explosion and a shattered mixing bowl - in the final to win the show.

After winning the show Rahul was signed as a columnist for The Times Magazine, as part of their Saturday supplement.

You can also find him regularly cooking on This Morning.

In 2018, Rahul also became a Stem (Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) ambassador to "help inspire the next generation of engineers".

When is the line-up for The Great British Bake Off announced?

Channel 4 are yet to let on when the official line-up for season 10 will be revealed.

However, we do know that applications to take part in the upcoming series took place earlier this year, with producers of the show having contacted those successful in February.

But given that the show is looking to return THIS MONTH (August) we’re not too far away from getting the official word from Channel 4.

Who are The Great British Bake Off 2019 judges and presenters?

Well, Bake Off wouldn't be Bake Off without Paul Hollywood.

Paul has been on the show since it started, and stuck with it when the programme moved from the BBC to Channel 4.

Also, let's not forget Prue Leith who will be back for another series after becoming an instant hit with viewers when she replaced Mary Berry.

And last, but by no means least, Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig will reprise their roles as hosts of the popular TV programme.

What is the Great British Bake Off prize?

With all the drama, sweat and tears that the dedicated bakers go through, you’d expect they would be aiming for some grand cash prize, but the answer is no.

The winning prize is just flowers and a cake stand, at least that's what has happened so far.

Previous Bake Off contestant Martha Collison, who reached the quarter-finals in the 2014 series, confirmed to Barrelhouse: “Everyone is so surprised and thinks there must be some secret cash, but all we really get is a bunch of flowers and a cake stand.

“But then, you also kind of become a national treasure just by doing it because everyone in Britain loves the bake off so much.”
