Nothing says ‘summer is here” like the BBC’s beloved baking contest, with its rustic marquee setting and its occasional gigantic thunderstorms.

After a delay for the Olympics, the seventh series of “The Great British Bake Off” is finally about to begin, bringing a whole new set of bakers into the tent.

The wonderfully brilliant Sue Perkins, presents alongside her comedy partner Mel Giedroyc, in arguably the best cookery programme on TV.

What better way to kick off the series than with the treat that Bake Off is most known for – cakes. Expect to see classic sponges, intriguing tips and a task that’s set to put paid to an age-old question: Is a Jaffa Cake an actual cake or a biscuit?

“The Great British Bake Off” starts on Wednesday 24th August, 8pm on BBC1.
