News Image
Channel 4 has confirmed two festive editions of The Great British Bake Off will air on the channel later this year.

Each episode will see four former bakers from previous series return to the baker's tent as they go head-to-hear in three seasonal challenges to find out who will be Star Baker.

The Great Christmas Bake Off will see former GBBO bakers Paul Jagger, Beca Lyne-Pirkis, Selasi Gbormittah and Val Stones back to face three yuletide challenges.

Meanwhile, The Great Festive Bake Off welcomes four more previous bakers as they return to create something to celebrate in three challenges. The contestants are Benjamina Ebuehi, Rob Billington, Rav Bansal and Sandy Docherty.

GBBO judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood return for the Christmas specials, as do the hosts Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig.

The Great Christmas Bake Off and The Great Festive Bake Off will be on Channel 4 during the festive season, with dates and times to be confirmed.
