Ready, set, bake…! Popular TV show The Great British Bake Off will return to screens on Wednesday, 6 August.  

This is the fifth series of the baking competition, which is judged by Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry. The show will be aired on BBC One instead of the programme’s usual platform of BBC Two.

Comedian Jo Brand will present a spin off show on BBC Two, called The Great British Bake Off - An Extra Slice. This will feature bonus interviews and footage from the heats of the hit baking programme.

The series launches after the news this week that BskyB had acquired a majority stake in the production company behind the show. The satellite giant bought a 70% stake in Love Productions in a deal reportedly worth around £24.5m.

Watch the teaser trailer from the BBC below, featuring lovable presenters Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc:
