Channel 4's The Great British Bake Off is looking for its next batch of bakers as it cooks up for a brand new series.

The show, which looks annually to crown the UK's best amateur baker, is famed for its innuendos, its downright jaw-dropping showstoppers and its very British drama (from binned Baked Alaskas to dropped Pineapple Upside Down Cake).

And it's looking for new recruits. So, if you think you could be the next Nadiya Hussain, Candice Brown or Sophie Faldo then now is your chance.

Think you can give it a go? You've got 40 days to get your application sorted, with the show offering Sunday 6th December 2020 as your solid deadline.

This year's helping of Bake Off was delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which halted several television productions across the UK.

Channel 4 ensured the series was possible by following strict and rigorous social distancing measures.

The huge cast and crew had to self-isolate for two weeks before filming began.

Back in July, the entire 120 group - including the bakers, judges, crew, support and staff - moved in together at Down Hall country house, forming one huge coronavirus "bubble".

This allowed the show to function how it usually does.

Director of Programmes at Channel 4, Kelly Webb-Lamb, was keen to have the show maintain its sense of normality.

Speaking to the Observer, she said: "The whole point of the bubble [was] being able to be close to each other or pat people on the back, or it wouldn't be Bake Off."

This season has also introduced Matt Lucas as the show's new host, after Sandi Toksvig quit the programme at the start of the year.

This week, the bakers in the tent tackled the tricky Japanese-themed week for the first time ever.
