    It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, as Sandi Toksvig, Noel Fielding, Paul Hollywood, Prue Leith gather in the tent for a Traditional Family themed Bake Off, which sees the reunion of two of last years most loved bakers, Val and Selasi. King of the Jungle bread man Paul Jagger (series 6) and Beca Lyne-Pirkis (series 4) will also join the festive fight for the Christmas Star Baker title.With none of the returning bakers ever winning the coveted Star Baker accolade during their time on Bake Off, the competition is on for one of them to finally clinch the Christmas crown.

    The challenges have a comforting theme of Christmas nostalgia, featuring a swirly sponge signature, a deceptively simple technical and one of the trickiest showstoppers to ever feature on Bake Off. Noel, Sandi, Prue and Paul join friends and family in the snowy wonderland, to announce the winner of The Great Christmas Bake Off. As the snow falls, Roy Wood from 70’s Rock group Wizzard, kicks off the celebrations with a rocking rendition of ‘I wish it could be Christmas every day’. The performance concludes with Noel on stage singing the crowd out to Christmas.
