With just six days to go until Great British Bake Off returns to our screens, Channel 4 has finally released the official trailer.

You can watch it below:

In the clip, viewers are introduced to the 12 new 2020 contestants (read more about them here) and we also say hello to brand new host Matt Lucas, who has replaced Sandi Toksvig.

And it looks like Season 11 is going to serve up some seriously nail biting episodes, with the trailer teasing catastrophic looking bakes, plenty of drama and heaps of hilarious moments.

At one point, Paul Hollywood refers to a sponge is "bone dry" (yikes), contestant Rowan attempts to finish off a cake in the microwave and one baker serves up a collapsed chocolate showstopper.

Elsewhere, Matt Lucas accidentally eats what appears to be a rose hip, with baker Sura explaining: "You're not supposed to eat that."

To which Matt replies: "Well I know that now!"

One thing is for sure, it definitely seems like the whole crew had a mega fun time filming this year - despite the pandemic.

While the new season is slightly behind schedule, as filming was supposed to begin in April but was delayed until July, we're so glad the iconic baking show is able to go ahead this year.

To ensure they could film safely, it's believed contestants and crew all quarantined in the run up to the filming, essentially creating a bubble.

Little Britain star Matt recently spoke about the filming process, explaining the crew had hired out a hotel and even described it as "like a holiday camp".

"Love Productions hired a hotel and we had a skeleton staff of 25, and we had a Covid medic team and special cleaners and everyone lived in this hotel and the tent was in the grounds," he told Steph's Packed Lunch this week.

"It was tough for the bakers - we had two days on and two days off, and on the days off the bakers were in practice kitchen, so it was gruelling for them.

"... I hosted bingo one night, and Prue did a flower arranging class, and Paul Hollywood bought his pizza oven and made pizzas for everybody, it was like a holiday camp."

That actually sounds like so much fun.

Bake Off returns to Channel 4 on Wednesday 22nd September at 8pm.
