Back for Season 11

A great British tradition is to sit down together with the family to have dinner and to watch the telly. Though this tradition has been occurring for decades, the kind of programmes British households watch has changed. Competition-based reality shows rule the airwaves in 2020. However, few reality shows have the longevity to last more than a couple of seasons, but certain shows may contain the perfect formula (or in this case, the right recipe) that can help it last.

New Faces in the Kitchen  

After the first season premiered in August 2010, The Great British Bake Off is back on the air for its 11th season. Even after 100 Episodes and 28 specials have aired, the show still is as popular as ever. The coming season is the fourth series to be broadcast on Channel 4 but you are not able to watch it from outside the UK. From the details we know, this season is to be different to the previous in a few ways. Comedian Noel Fielding returns as the host, while Matt Lucas has replaced Sandi Toksvig for a change of flavour. Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith will also be returning to our screens.

There's more bang for your buck this year with episodes extending in length from 75 minutes to 90 minutes. The reason for this change is not been mentioned by Channel 4, but we are happy to have more baking action on our screens. It's incredibly impressive that the show is running in 2020 considering the limitations of filming during a pandemic. However, the filming all occurred in a quick 6 week period thanks to a "self-contained biosphere" which was set up in Down Hall Hotel in Bishop's Stortford. Contestants have been competing in a marquee tent which was erected in the Hotel's garden for the competition.

Set your timer

While few of the reality shows which were airing in 2010 have survived (despite some attempts at resurrection years later), the The Great British Bake Off rules the reality TV landscape ten years on. There have been arguments made that The Great British Bake Off is the best reality TV show ever. And well, we get why.

The trailer for the coming season 11 is below so you can get excited for what's to come.
