The Great British Bake Off 2019 begins on Tuesday, August 27 with 13 contestants taking to the tent. The early betting favourite is Alice, a 28-year-old geography teacher, who tops the odds at 11/2. But the betting is very, very tight.
Through Cake Week, Bread, Desserts, Spice, Pastry, and the probably Vegan Week, she will have to excite the judges, and better her fellow bakers, who are the youngest collection in Bake Off history.

The Great British Bake Off is a baking competition, where Britain’s top amateur bakers compete to be crowned Britain’s Star Baker. Their baking skills and techniques are put to the test each week, where they must bake a certain type of cake or pastry, or use a particular baking technique.
A panel of judges taste and critique the bakers efforts, then decide who will be eliminated each week. In every episode, contestants are faced with three challenges; a signature bake, technical challenge, and showstopper challenge. After baking, one contestant is named ‘Star Baker of the Week’ and another is eliminated. The fight to make it through each elimination is no piece of cake!

The Great British Bake Off has been bringing baking to the masses since 2010. It began on the BBC and moved to Channel 4 for Series 8 in 2017. It is often known simply as 'Bake Off' or 'GBBO', and is the brainchild of producer Anna Beattie
Beattie was inspired by classic English village fête baking competitions and American 'bake-offs' friends had described. It took her four years to sell the show to the BBC, and now on Channel 4 it attracts more than 10 million viewers for its showcase finale, and has won three BAFTAs.
