We finally have a start date for this year's Great British Bake Off - August 27

G'wannnn.

The Great British Bake Off is returning soon.

Like, really soon. Like, at the end of this month soon. And yeah, get hyped.

The release date for the upcoming series of the show was finally released today and it confirmed that we were only going to have to wait a few more weeks until the delicious treats are back on our screens.

Because Bake Off is returning to Channel 4 on August 27.

Delighted, IMO.

Channel 4 confirmed Bake Off 2019's return date today with a stunning promo shot of judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith alongside hosts Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig chilling out in an Alice in Wonderland-esque garden.

GBBO will be returning to the broadcaster for its third year after leaving the BBC in 2016.

It lost former presenters Sue and Mel as well as much loved and respected judge Mary Berry, however the show (thankfully) remained as delightful and lovely as always.

Last year, the adorable Rahul emerged victorious after stunning the judges - and everybody at home - with his array of incredibly impressive cakes, breads, and vegan treats.

Basically, he was the best lad and we're extremely unsure that we'll ever see another contestant like him.

Only time will tell.

The Great British Bake Off returns at 8pm on August 27 on Channel 4.
