‘Great British Bake Off’ fans can finally put a date in their diaries, as the start date for the new series has been confirmed.

‘Bake Off’ is set to return to our screens on Wednesday 5 August, and to be honest, we can’t quite believe it’s been a year since Nancy triumphed on the show.

Of course, we can’t mention last year’s show without discussing baked alaska-gate, and we’ll be sitting tight in case tensions rise - and Victoria Sponges fail to - this time around.

Presenter Sue Perkins recently discussed the kerfuffle, insisting that Ian Watters’ dessert disaster was “a non-event in the tent".

Series six has a lot to live up to, but if the recently-released trailer, which features Mary Berry doing a Julie Andrews, is anything to go by, we won’t be left disappointed.

Watch the (brilliantly camp) trailer below…

"Some of them have got a good forking."
