The return date for the hugely popular BBC show The Great British Bake Off finally has finally been announced.

Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood will be back on BBC One judging a brand new batch of bakers from Wednesday, August 24.

A tweet from the show stated: "The proof of the pudding is in the tweeting.We're delighted to confirm that #GBBO will return on Weds 24th August!"

It's returning a bit later than usual due to the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, which is generally playing havoc with TV schedules.
