The topic of this page has a wiki of its own: The Great British Bake Off Wiki.


The Great British Baking Off is the popular BBC baking show hosted by Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood.


The Great British Bake Off is a BAFTA award-winning British television baking competition first shown by the BBC on 17 August 2010. The judges are cookery writer Mary Berry and professional baker Paul Hollywood. Mel Giedroyc & Sue Perkins have presented all four series of the programme. The competition selects from amongst its competitors the best amateur baker.

Having gained increasing popularity since the first series, it is credited with reinvigorating interest in baking throughout the UK and many of its participants, including winners, have gone on to start a career based on bakery (notably Joanne Wheatley, Edd Kimber, and John Whaite).

The series now appears in three versions: the main Bake Off series, a celebrity charity series in aid of Sport Relief or Comic Relief, and Junior Bake Off, for young children (broadcast on the CBBC channel).
