We’re pretty much all in agreement that we’ve never needed the wholesome content of The Great British Baking Show more, and the time has finally arrived. Despite delays due to COVID-19, Britain’s best amateur bakers will once again gather in the tent hoping to prove their technical bakes and showstoppers are enough to earn them the coveted title of Star Baker. This year, Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith will return as judges, and Noel Fielding will return as cohost along with comedian Matt Lucas, who is replacing Sandi Toksvig as cohost.Knowing we aren’t good with change when it comes to our beloved Baking Show, producers have promised us that the show won’t be dissimilar from past seasons, despite challenges faced by the pandemic. Filming for the new season began at the end of July, and it was reported that all contestants and crew had to quarantine for 14 days prior to filming. The new season will premiere in the UK on Sept. 22, then head to Netflix at a later date. So, without further ado, let’s meet the 2020 Great British Baking Show contestants:Hermine, 39-year-old accountant living in LondonDave, 30-year-old security guard from HampshireLinda, 61-year-old retirement-living team leader from East SussexLoriea, 27-year-old diagnostic radiographer from DurhamMakbul, 51-year-old accountant from Greater ManchesterSura, 31-year-old pharmacy dispenser from LondonMarc, 51-year-old bronze resin sculptor from Leicester, now living in CornwallLaura, 31-year-old digital manager from KentMark, 32-year-old public-health project worker from Northern Ireland, now living in LiverpoolPeter, 20-year-old accounting and finance student from EdinburghLottie, 31-year-old pantomime producer from West SussexRowan, 55-year-old music teacher from Worcestershire View this post on Instagram A post shared by Channel 4 on Sep 15, 2020 at 1:05am PDTHere’s the lot of ’em!
