If you're a fan of cooking shows then Netflix has some good news for you as new episodes of season 11 of the hit British reality show The Great British Bake Off are coming to the streaming platform just three days after they premiere in the UK.
The Great British Bake Off (known in the US as The Great British Baking Show) pits 12 amateur home bakers against one another in a series of challenges designed to test their skills in the kitchen. The show has been quite popular in the UK for the past decade but in recent years, it has also become a hit in the US thanks to the fact that seven seasons of the show are currently available on Netflix.
Season 11 of the Great British Bake Off was originally scheduled to begin filming in April of this year but like many other shows, it was forced to shut down as a result of the pandemic. Fortunately for fans of the show, production resumed in July and now new episodes will be available every Tuesday in the UK and every Friday in the US. While episodes of the show are normally set inside contestant's houses, this season the competitors, crew, judges and hosts all relocated to the Down Hall Hotel in Bishop's Stortfront for six weeks.
Judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith are returning for season 11 along with host Noel Fielding. However, Sandi Toksvig will no longer be hosting the Great British Bake Off as she has been replaced by comedian Noel Fielding.
