This week the GBBO hopefuls will take on a ‘Festival’ theme for the first time ever.

There are only six bakers left in the Great British Bake Off tent desperate to impress Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith.

But with the judges setting them a brand new challenge for Week Seven, here's everything we know about Tuesday's episode…

What can viewers expect from Festival week?

Presenters Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig are host the extra special festival-themed round which kicks off with a signature challenge inspired by celebrations across the world.

Next up, the contestants will be tasked with creating ‘a classic deep-fried Italian dish’.

While this is still very much a mystery, we’re sure something notoriously difficult will be hiding underneath that gingham cloth.

There will then be a classic Showstopper challenge which we imagine will be bursting with colour and vibrancy before Paul and Prue decide who will be crowned Star Baker.

Who left the GBBO tent last week?

The seventh person to leave this year's The Great British Bake Off was revealed as Priya, who failed to impress during Dessert Week.

The 34-year-old marketing consultant from Leicester, said: "I've learnt so much, Paul. It's felt like such a privilege to be in the tent.

"It's meant to be me that if you just start with the things you really enjoy, you can't go wrong."

Meanwhile, Steph won the honour of Star Baker for the third time in a row.
