The Great British Bake Off ((GBBO) often shorten to Bake Off), also called The Great British Baking Show in the U.S, is the popular BBC baking show hosted by Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood.


The Great British Bake Off is a BAFTA award-winning British television baking competition first shown by the BBC on 17 August 2010. The competition selects from amongst its competitors the best amateur baker.

Having gained increasing popularity since the first series, it is credited with reinvigorating interest in baking throughout the UK, and many of its participants, including winners, have gone on to start a career based on bakery (notably Joanne Wheatley, Edd Kimber, and John Whaite).

The series now appears in three versions: the main Bake Off series, a celebrity charity series in aid of Sport Relief or Comic Relief, and Junior Bake Off, for young children (broadcast on the CBBC channel).
