Great British Bake Off contestants are announced

Bake off fever has hit! The Great British Bake Off, the nation’s televised baking competition, will hit the screens from BBC One next Wednesday.

Released today were this year’s bake-off contestants. The hopeful bakers dozen includes the oldest contestant yet - Diana from Shropshire at 69, and the youngest - Martha from Berkshire at 17.  

The selected 12 will be wittled down to a final two over the coming weeks, as they complete three tasks a week; the signature, the technical and the showstopper challenge.

Meet the contestants yourself by scrolling through our gallery. There’s a winner in that bunch! But who will it be?

The show starts on 6 August at 8pm.
