The Great British Bake Off: are you ready for the annual extravaganza of collapsed cake dramas, soggy bottom pies, and cream creations that make your mouth water?

Yup, the show returns soon. The start date of this year's Bake Off is still being kept carefully under wraps, although if past years are anything to judge by, we'll bet on the last Tuesday of August, which this year falls on the 27th. Watch this space for updates, though.  

What DO we know though? The official – if slightly surreal (what would you expect?) – promo video for the show has been released by Channel 4 (watch it below), and fans will be relieved to know that that the line up has remained the same, with Prue and Paul judging, and Sandi and Noel presenting. 

As for the future star bakers, Channel 4 is keeping quiet. But as soon as we hear a rumour, we'll let you know.
