Great British Bake Off fans, we finally have a release date - and it's less that two weeks until the most comforting show on television is back on our screens (which is much needed, we think you'll agree).
Season 11 of the baking competition is returning to Channel 4 on Tuesday 22nd September at 8pm. Eeek!
The news was announced on social media with the joyous words: "Put a little love in your tart. Join us on Tuesday 22nd September for the return of The Great British Bake Off!"
The release date was posted alongside the newly-released official photo of new judge Matt Lucas shot alongside Paul Hollywood, Prue Leith and Noel Fielding, who will all be retuning for the 2020 series.
The promo photo has been released just short of a month since the 11th season wrapped up filming after it was delayed following the coronavirus pandemic.
At the start of August, a tweet from the show's official Twitter feed read: "Filming has wrapped on the new series of The Great British Bake Off. More news soon..."
Welcoming Matt to the team, Noel said: "I love Matt. I love his warmth and his comedy and his big joyful smile. I think if we play our cards right we could become the next Chas and Morph."
While Paul Hollywood chipped in: "I'm a genuine fan of Matt's, it is such great news he will be joining us in the tent, he's a fantastic addition to the team."
While there's no word on the cast of bakers yet, we can expect that to come soon.
Mark the date in your calendars, bakers!
