Premiered July 1, 2016 on PBS | check local listings

Once again, 12 new bakers don their aprons and head for the iconic tent in the heart of the British Countryside. Judges Mary Berry & Paul Hollywood have created 30 new challenges that will test their baking prowess, creativity and skill in a bid to find the country’s best amateur baker. From Victorian classics to high end patisserie, chocolate sculptures to everyday staples the bakers will need a cool head and even colder hands to make it to the final. With them every step of the way are Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins ready to lend a hand or a shoulder to cry on.
