About Great British Bake Off
The Great British Bake Off' (often referred to as 'Bake Off' or 'GBBO') is an amateur baking competition that first aired on BBC Two in 2010. The series sees 12 members of the public compete weeks of challenges in order to be crowned Britain's best amateur baker. The first seven series featured Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry as judges, and comedy duo Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins as hosts. While it started out with modest ratings on BBC Two, the show slowly grew in popularity and was promoted to BBC One in 2015, where it often attracted upwards of 15 million viewers. There have been seven winners of the series - Edd Kimber, Joanne Wheatley, John Whaite, Frances Quinn, Nancy Birtwhistle, Nadiya Hussain and Candice Brown. In September 2016, it was announced Channel 4 had bought the rights to air the show, after a bidding war with the BBC, with production company Love Productions selling the rights to three series for a whopping £75m. Shortly afterwards, Mel, Sue and Mary all announced they would be leaving the show out of loyalty to the BBC, and the hunt for their replacements began. In March 2017, it was revealed Prue Leith would join Paul as a judge, with Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding taking over as hosts. The new series of 'Bake Off' launched on Channel 4 in the autumn of 2017.
