BBC One seems to be in a teasing mood at the moment. Following the release of a promotional image for the new Sherlock special, the Beeb are now tormenting us with a short teaser clip for yet another of their beloved programmes; The Great British Bake Off.
In the 10 second clip, presenter Mel Giedroyc can be seen lurking hungrily behind a rather splendid looking fruit cake – comically quivering at it’s magnificence.
The BAFTA winning baking competition first started in 2010 and is now it’s sixth series. The contest, which is hosted by female comedy duo, Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins, seeks to find the best amateur baker from a selection of eager participants. The bakes are judged by the nation’s latest sweethearts, Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry.
The show originally aired on BBC Two, but moved to BBC One last year after it became one of the most popular shows in Britain. The reigning champion of 2014 is Nancy Birtwhistle, a 61 year old Grandmother from Hull.
A specific air date for the new series has yet to be announced, but the BBC has promised it is ‘coming soon.’
Watch the teaser clip, below.
