News: Channel 4 Christmas Highlights Revealed

The Great Christmas Bake Off/The Great Festive Bake Off

It’s a time for spices, sweets and tasty baked treats as Prue Leith, Paul Hollywood, Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig bring some holiday cheer to The Great British Bake Off in two festive episodes. In each episode four former bakers from previous series will return to the tent to go head to head in three seasonal challenges to find out who will top the tree as Star Baker.

Some of the bakers may face the challenge that previously was their undoing but will a Christmas miracle help them to ace it this time round? Surprise musical guests and some very dodgy Christmas jumpers bring the spirit of Christmas to the tent with judges, hosts and bakers all joining in with a spot of singing (and dancing) themselves.
