First look: Great British Bake Off series four trailer
Thursday 08 August 2013
Almost a year since the tense finale of series three The Great British Bake Off is back on our screens.
The trailer for the new series, released today, promises lots more bread, buns and jolly banter from presenters Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc.
The teaser shows the bakers dithering and fussing over their creations, accompanied by a stirring classical music soundtrack.
The drama only heightens as the contestants come under pressure to serve up a perfectly formed madeleine or craft a croquembouche tower for baking royalty Merry Berry and Paul Hollywood.
Last week it was reported that every competitor managed to cut themselves when filming the opening episode. A source told The Sun: “It looked more like the set of a horror film than a cosy TV show.”
But this early setback in the kitchen shouldn’t hamper the contestants. Last year’s winner John Whaite fell victim to a rogue appliance in the baking tents, slicing his finger on the blade of an electric mixer while making a strudel, but still went on to be crowned champion.
The Great British Bake Off returns Tuesday 20 August at 8pm on BBC Two
