Nobody can really explain why but the nation is obsessed with The Great British Bake-Off.
Even though we have our own Irish version, we all religiously tune in every year to see what Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry have to say about the latest batch of ‘soggy bottoms’ and sugared treats.
There’s been a huge gap in our weekly viewing schedule since the last series ended so we were delighted to hear that the show will be returning in just a few weeks time!
GBBO normally kicks off at the beginning of August but according to The Sun, the start date has been delayed due to the Rio Olympics.
It is now set to begin on Wednesday 24 August, with a new selection of contestants fighting it out to follow in the footsteps of last year’s winner Nadiya Hussain.
We’ll be stocking up on the cupcakes!
