In this exciting new show, budding florists will compete for the title of 'best in bloom', with gigantic floral installations sure to impress the judges - and fans of The Great British Bake Off will love it!

Hosted by comedians Vic Reeves and Natasia Demetriou, it's got a touch of Bake Off about it, but instead of pitting contestants against each other for the title of star baker, contestants will be judged on their beautiful floral displays, the bigger the better.

So what can we expect from the new show?

We were treated to a first-look trailer earlier this month, which teased the gigantic flower arrangements that the contestants have to master in each episode.

"Ten pairs of amateur floral sculptors from around the world are coming together to battle it out," the trailer explains.

"Teams will create super-sized structures festooned with flowers and foliage.

The eight-part series will see contestants creating dramatic and sculptural floral arrangements, with each episode focusing on a different skillset.

Similar to GBBO's showstopper challenge, contestants will have to get to grip with creating a large-scale floral sculpture every week, out of flowers and natural materials.

Plus, they will also have to think about which plants give back to the environment, including pollinating and insect-friendly options, through a conservationist themed task each week.

Sadly, one pair will have to leave the competition at the end of each episode.

Judges will be looking for the best giant floral installation that is "colourful, beautiful and bigger than big," enthuses celebrity florist and The Big Flower Fight judge Kristen Griffith-VanderYacht in the trailer.

Kristen won the title of Top Florist in the World two years running so he's sure to be a hard judge to impress.

Each week, Kristen will be joined by a different guest judge, among them Simon Lycett, James Wong, James Alexander-Sinclair, Sarah Eberle and Sophie Walker.

Contestants include fine artist-turned-florist and freelance florist Henck and Yan, father and son team Ralph and Jim and wedding florists and colleagues Sarah and Jordan.

Meanwhile, Yeo Valley's head gardener and Youtuber Andi and Helen will be pitted against interior plant stylist and plant coach Taylor and Nick.

The winner of The Big Flower Fight will win a chance to create their own sculpture, to be displayed in London's Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

Speaking about the show, co-host Vic said: I had the most wonderful summer watching immense floral sculptures emerge from nothing with my favourite co-presenter, Tash."

While Natasia was similarly enthusiastic: "Working with Vic Reeves in a beautiful English field surrounded by loads of chicken wire - it's every person's dream job."

Move over Sandi and Noel, it seems we've got a new dream duo on our screens.
