Great British Bake Off unveils line-up

OHMYGOSSIP — ‘Great British Bake Off’ has unveiled its youngest line-up yet.
The culinary competition will this year see 13 hopefuls test their baking skills under the watchful eyes of Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith, with the average age of the contestants just 31, four years younger than previous years.
Student Henry and part-time waiter Jamie are this year’s youngest hopefuls, with both 20 year olds inspired to have improved their skills thanks to the show, while the oldest hopeful is 56-year-old HGV driver Phil, who bakes five days a week, having found his passion while at school.
Alice, a 28-year-old geography teacher also learned to bake during her school days, using it to pass the time when she was 15 after a back operation left her unable to do sport.
Veterinary surgeon Rosie, 28, started even younger, thanks to a baking book she was given when she was just five years old.
Michael, 26, a theatre manager and fitness instructor is inspired by the flavours of his Indian heritage while Priya, 34, has recently been experimenting with vegan bakes, and shop assistant Steph, 28, has been working to make her bakes healthier with vegetables and fruit.
Helena, 40, grew up in Lanzarote and spent much of her childhood watching her Spanish grandmother bake but the project manager only got into baking after she spent time living in Las Vegas.
Health adviser David, 36, was inspired by his mum to learn to bake and developed his passion further when he travelled to Malawi and invented a cake that could steam cook over a village fire.
Dan, 32, learned to bake a Victoria sponge as a child and decided to improve his skills when he was 21 when he wanted to impress his girlfriend with a birthday cake – and it must have worked because he later made their wedding cake.
Rounding out this year’s line up are 35-year-old Michelle, a print shop administrator from Tenby, Wales, and Amelia, a 24-year-old sportswear designer from Halifax.
‘Great British Bake Off’ – which is hosted by Noel FIelding and Sandi Toksvig – returns to Channel 4 next Tuesday (27.08.19) at 8pm.
