New series. Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding welcome 12 contestants to the tent, where judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith oversee them in three challenges. This year, the competition kicks off with Biscuit Week, and the bakers are challenged to make signature biscuits that will say something both about them and a place in the British Isles, before tackling one of Paul's childhood favourites in the Technical. Finally, the bakers are tasked to make a 3D biscuit portrait in their first Showstopper.
