When is Great British Bake Off on channel four?

The new series of The Great British Bake Off started on August 29 and continues to air every week on Tuesday at 8pm on Channel 4.

The Bake Off was bought by Channel 4 last year amid much controversy, meaning the popular cooking contest moved from the BBC.

There were a few casualties of the move so popular hosts Mel and Sue and much-loved judge Mary Berry won’t be appearing on the new series.

The Paul Hollywood will now be joined on the judging panel by Great British Menu judge Prue Leith.

While the show will now be presented by Sandi Toksvig and funny man Noel Fielding.
