What is the Great British Bake Off?

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.

Through Cake Week, Bread, Desserts, Spice, Pastry and Vegan Week, bakers aim to impress judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith and better their fellow bakers, before the judges 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 interest in this baking competition is said to have reinvigorated interest in baking in Britain, leaving viewers drooling over the scores of delicious bakes each week. Naturally, Great British Bake Off betting has become the icing on the cake for this competition, similar to the growth in betting on other popular television series, like X Factor betting.

Great British Bake Off History

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.
