The Great British Bake Off judges aren’t going anywhere

No changes behind the table: Paul Hollywood is sticking around to hand out sweaty, increasingly less valuable handshakes, and Prue Leith will continue to rate cakes according to their calorie status in a sort of lawful good doctrine. Mighty Boosh star Noel Fielding is still around, but Winnie the Witch narrator Sandi Toksvig is still out: former Little Britain star Matt Lucas will continue in her stead.

And what of the 2022 GBBO contestants?

Twelve bakers, one short of the usual bakers’ dozen, otherwise known as an easy casting pun, will face up to technical challenges, signature bakes, and the extremely stressful task of producing goods that respond to minuscule changes in temperature and humidity in a Very Big Tent That Is Entirely Open To The Atmosphere. Here are this year’s Great British Bake Off bakers — and don’t forget to come back to track their progress.
