WATCH: The new Great Christmas British Bake Off trailer before the last ever BBC episode
Prepare yourself to bid an emotional farewell to the treasured Bake Off foursome as the last ever BBC episode of The Great British Bake Off will be airing on Christmas day. Here is a peek of what is to come in the official trailer for the festive special.
Never will a Christmas Special feel as bittersweet as this one as we watch our favourite baking television hosts come together for one last time before the programme makes its move to Channel 4.
Earlier this year, Mary Berry, Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc announced their departure from the show after deciding to remain loyal to the BBC broadcaster. Much to the devastation of Bake Off fans everywhere, only Paul Hollywood chose to follow the job over to Channel 4.
The trailer for the Christmas Special has landed and boy does it look like a good ‘un. The trailer opens with a warming sentiment as a voice over says: “Tis the season for bakers’ past, so come rejoin the Bake Off cast.”
A shot of Mel and Sue welcoming back a variety of the programme’s former contestants is shown as Sue declares: “It is like having the family here for Christmas!”
However, a grumpy Paul reminds viewers he will not be letting the Christmas spirit interfere with his judging as he says to the camera: “Bah! Humbug!”
With the all the baking innuendos, cooking calamities and Bake Off charm we could hope for, this final episode is definitely not one to miss this holiday. So, make sure you tune in on Christmas day for the two-part special!
The Great Christmas British Bake Off airs on Christmas Day at 4:45pm on BBC One.
