What is The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice?
The programme really does what it says on the baking tin – it’s an extra slice of all the tastiness of the main show.
Like the main show, An Extra Slice is also shown on Channel 4.
Presenter Jo Brand is expected to once again be at the helm of the spin-off and as usual will no doubt be joined by a host of celebrities.
The show looks back at the past week’s bakes – and decides whether the right person left the tents.
It also includes unseen footage that wasn’t aired in the week’s episode.
Audience members can also get their own baking rated on the show by a celebrity guest.
Jo shares pictures sent in from cooks around the country – ranging from culinary delights to baking disasters.
And the evicted baker also guest stars and gets a chance to re-do one of their failed bakes.
When is Bake Off: An Extra Slice on?
The spin off show airs on Fridays – just a few days after the main show.
If this year follows the same format as last year, then Bake Off: An Extra Slice will air on Channel 4 at 8pm.
If you miss it, you’ll be able to catch it again on the ITV Hub.
The Great British Bake Off is likely to return to Channel 4 on Tuesdays at 8pm, as was the case last year.

I’m afraid we don’t have an official start day for The Great British Bake Off 2019, but we do know it will be August.
Last year it started on August 28, and with this in mind, it could kick off at 8pm on Channel 4 on August 27, 2019 – as it always starts on a Tuesday.
The show will run for 10 consecutive weeks.
The final is likely to be on November 5, 2019 – but this is also still to be confirmed.
