The 14th season of The Great British Bake Off began on Tuesday 26th September 2023.
And just like every year its beloved spin-off show is back to entertain baking enthusiasts, too.

Who's hosting Bake Off: An Extra Slice?
Comedian Jo Brand is back presenting the spin-off show, along with her trusty sidekick Tom Allen.
Each week, the 66-year-old writer will welcome the eliminated baker onto the couch for an exclusive interview about where it all went right – and wrong.
Alongside the unlucky contestant, a celebrity panel will critique the episode's sweet treats and gossip about all the drama from the show two days before.
Just like previous years, Tom is also back to judge the audiences home bakes and bring an extra slice of sarcasm to the fun as he unleashes his true thoughts on the GBBO creations.
Who are the Extra Slice celebrity guests?
The very first episode on season 14 saw the talented bakers attempt vertical cakes, animal-themed showstoppers and the even iconic Bake Off chocolate fudge creation.
And it was gentle giant Amos who stumbled at the finish line due to a sponge which tasted "as tough as old boots", said judge Paul.
Despite leaving in week one, the 43-year-old film and theatre enthusiast will get to meet Jo Brand and Tom Allen as he will appear on Bake Off: Extra Slice.
Also joining him on the spin-off show will be brand new host Alison Hammond and celebrity fans Stephen Mangan and Michelle Visage.
The gang are set to discuss the brand new batch of bakers and will break down the drama of Cake Week.
