The Great British Baking Show Season 4 premiere

Follow 12 amateur bakers in their quest to be named Britain’s best.
As judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood create 30 new challenges to test their skill and creativity, Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins are with them every step of the way.


Great British Baking Show hostsTHE GREAT BRITISH BAKING SHOW follows amateur bakers from diverse backgrounds who tackle culinary trials that increase in difficulty as the competition unfolds. In each episode, challenges come in three categories: a Signature Bake, to test the contestants’ creative flair and baking ability; a Technical Bake, in which challengers receive basic recipes with ingredient lists and minimal instruction; and the Showstopper Bake, designed to display depth of skill and talent.

As in past seasons, bakers will be judged by Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood, two icons of British baking. With nearly 60 years of cooking experience, Berry established herself as a leading food writer and broadcaster. Over her career, she has published 70 cookbooks that have sold millions of copies around the world. She was also appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) during the Queen’s 2012 Birthday Honors. The son of a baker, Paul Hollywood is one of the U.K.’s leading artisan bread makers. Though trained as a sculptor, he was persuaded by his father to join the family business and to combine both his artistic and culinary talents. Hollywood has worked in some of the world’s most exclusive hotels, including London’s Dorchester. He published the best-selling 100 Great Breads, which to date has been translated into seven languages. Comedy duo Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc are also back as the series hosts who keep the contestants and judges grounded, providing the right balance of humor, support and naughtiness.

The Great British Baking Show Season 4 begins in mid-June and will air on MPT as follows:

  • Friday, June 16, 9:00-11:00pm
  • Fridays, June 23 – July 28, 9:00-10:00pm
