BBC One has announced that there will be two ‘The Great Christmas Bake Off’ specials for the yuletide season.
The two 60-minute episodes, which will be made by Love Productions, replace the ‘Bake Off Masterclasses’ that have been shown in previous years.
In each show, judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood and presenters Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins will welcome back a total of four bakers from past series, and ask them to don their Christmas jumpers and aprons to tackle three festive challenges.
BBC content director Charlotte Moore said: “What a treat to bring two ‘Great British Bake Off’ specials to BBC One this Christmas. Mary, Paul, Mel and Sue are the perfect recipe for the festive season.”
