When does the new series of The Great British Bake Off start?

Channel 4 has yet to confirm a date for the new series but there are hopes the show will be coming to screens in the not-too-distant future.

The broadcaster will be unveiling its teaser for the forthcoming series, which means it won’t be long now.

Whether the show will be pared back remains to be seen with fellow reality series Strictly Come Dancing opting for a shorter run this year.

The social distancing measures in place may also mean filming on Bake Off may have taken longer.

However, with a show like Bake Off, it would be easier to social distance by making the tent larger to account for extra space.

Generally, each series of Bake Off has started towards the end of August and into the beginning of September but this year the COVID-19 pandemic saw the start date pushed back.

In the trailer, a boy is seen cycling through the streets as he hurries home while people around him are desperately trying to get ingredients during lockdown to make bakes items.

The boy makes it to his grandmother’s house and presents him with the all-important ingredient of flour – something which was in short supply during the coronavirus lockdown.
