It’s semi-final week on Bake Off. It’s patisserie week.

The competition is at an all-time high as the remaining bakers battle it out to get one step closer to the final. The signature dish will require a delicate dome and a perfect finish – elsewhere, for the technical, the candidates must take a croquembouche to a new level. And finally, the showstopper challenge will see bakers use all of their skills to construct an edible display case which will lead to the final verdict from Paul and Prue on who will be going home.

Junior Bake Off is also set for a return where judge Prue will be joined by former Bake Off contestant Liam Charles and the host is rumoured to be comedian Harry Hill! We can’t get enough Bake-Off, can you?
