Just one day after announcing the premiere date for its 13th series, The Great British Bake Off has revealed its cast…also known as the Class of 2022.
A photo shared to social media introduced fans to the 12 lucky bakers headed to the tent. (Technically, they’ve already been in the tent as filming wrapped earlier this year.)
The Great British Bake Off Series 13 premiere is scheduled to air on Britain’s Channel 4 on September 13. American viewers can expect to see new episodes on Netflix a few days after they air across the pond.
We’ve done some digging to get more information on this year’s talented amateur bakers and have listed those details below. We’ve also included link to their social media so you can support them on their Bake Off journey.
