Think you have what it takes to make it in the tenth? The Great British Bake Off is back for its tenth series after a successful 2018 series!

Online applications for Bake Off 2019:
Applications are already open – do you have what it takes to impress Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith?
You can apply at gbbo.take-part.co.uk.
Here are a few tips:
You can apply via the official website, email or post.
If you’re thinking of applying then it may be best to start now as the application form is crazily long. Be prepared to describe how varied your baking repertoire really is, divulge your most challenging experience with a meringue and post five pictures of your best bakes demonstrating a range of baking disciplines.
Remember, only amateur bakers can take part in Bake Off – you’re not allowed to apply if you’ve ever “worked full-time as a baker, cook or chef”.
Plus, you must not have “any catering NVQ and/or any other qualification in baking, cooking, food production, food preparation or catering, unless acquired over 10 years ago”. And just to keep things fair, you can only send in one application at a time.
Filming is expected to take place between April and July 2019, with the exact dates still to be confirmed.
And you can find all further details on their website and the application form.
