From Bake Off to Nigella, BBC dishes up a feast of Christmas foodie shows

BBC Television has revealed details of upcoming festive versions of some of its cookery shows, alongside new content especially for the Christmas season.

In the final ever episodes of BBC One’s ‘The Great Christmas Bake Off’, some of the show’s memorable past contestants will dig out their pinnies and re-enter the famous tent armed with their best festive recipes.

BBC Two’s ‘Victorian Bakers’ -four professional bakers who leave their modern businesses behind to bake their way through the Victorian era- will tackle historical festive feasts

BBC Two’s ‘Inside The Factory’ co-presenters Gregg Wallace and Cherry Healey – who get exclusive access to some of the largest factories in Britain to reveal the secrets behind production on an epic scale – will watch the making of millions of mince pies.

Finally, Nigella Lawson will return to BBC Two with a biopic on pioneering Italian chef Anna del Conte.

Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content, said: “We’ve pulled out all the stops this Christmas to bring the nation together with a sparkling line-up of family favourites, brand new treats and festive specials on BBC Television.”
