Great British Bake Off 2019 – when does it start, who are the judges and who are this year’s bakers?


LAST year the nation was glued to Great British Bake Off yet again, with Rahul Mandal wining the top baker accolade at the end of the ninth series.

And as we are just weeks away from season 10 returning to our screens, we’ve got all the information you need, including who is expected to return. Find out below…

When does The Great British Bake Off 2019 start on Channel 4?

Currently, The Great British Bake Off is expected to return to Channel 4 in August, but an official date has yet to be confirmed.

The show usually runs consecutively for ten weeks, so we can expect a similar format with this series.

This would mean that the baking show will be on our screens until October – similarly to previous years.

With that said, we’re still waiting for confirmation from Channel 4, so hold tight.

Who are this year’s judges and hosts?

As yet we haven’t heard any news of a major shakeup, so we can expect to see the same friendly faces as last season.

Including English chef and TV personality Paul Hollywood who will no doubt be back for 10th series of The Great British Bake Off.

Let’s face it, without Paul, the show just wouldn’t be the same, and while Channel 4 has yet to confirm his return, it’s more than likely that he’ll be back.

Prue Leith replaced Mary Berry when she joined the TV programme in March, 2017, but is the 79-year-old looking to return for yet another season?

Again, while the details are still under wraps regarding the upcoming series, there’s been no indication of a potential departure for the British-South African restaurateur and chef.

Elsewhere, Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig are likely to reprise their role as hosts of the popular TV programme.

Who’s in the line-up?

It’s unclear when Channel 4 will announce the official line-up for season 10 as of right now.

However, we do know that applications to take part in the series have already been and gone earlier this year – producers of the show contacted successful applicants back in February.

So, it’s more than likely that an official list of contestants has been gathered – we just don’t know who yet!

But given that the show is looking to return in August, we’re not too far away from getting the official word from Channel 4.

What’s the prize?

You may be shocked to know that there isn’t actually a prize to be won when competing with other contestants in The Great British Bake Off… rather the prize of pride!

Fans of the show know that the winner is usually presented with flowers and a cake stand, which sounds pretty underwhelming after all their toil in the kitchen.

However, it’s commonly known that the winners of the show often go on to make a fortune from endorsement deals, sponsorships and appearances.
