So, it's official, The Great British Bake Off is over for another year.

After a tense finale, another winner has been crowned, and all we can do is wait until 2020 for more Paul Hollywood handshakes, soufflé disasters, jaw dropping technicals and rumoured in-tent-romances.

But if you were watching this year's series thinking you could handle the heat, then good news: because you can apply to be in the eleventh series of Bake Off right now.

It doesn't stop there though, as former contestants have revealed they then faced a technical challenge IRL, where they were filmed and then analysed by producers before the final batch of stars are eventually chosen.

It's a long process, sure. But imagine holding that Bake Off trophy at the end.

The makers of Bake Off, Love Productions, advise: "When selecting applicants for the Programme Love Productions will, amongst other factors take into account: skill, enthusiasm, drive and love of baking.
