On your marks, get set, bake!

The Great British Bake Off continues for a third week as bread takes the spotlight from biscuits. Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood will be judging how our bakers fare in the tent as the pressure begins to mount but who will take the star baker crown from Candice and who will be bidding us farewell?

This year’s bakers include 23-year-old teaching assistant Benjamina, politics student Michael, former primary school headteacher Val and the bookies favourite, client service associate Selasi.

Officially one of the UK's biggest TV shows, the first episode of the new series attracted a staggering 11.2 million viewers - almost half the UK TV watching audience and a whole million more than last year’s opener.

The Great British Bake Off airs on Wednesdays at 8pm on BBC One.
