If you have enjoyed watching series 2 of The Great British Bake Off, as I had, on GEM recently, you will be pleased to know that GEM will air the third series, shown in UK last year, starting on Sunday, December 1, 2013 at 7:30pm. Note that the show has moved to Sunday nights instead of Tuesdays when they showed series two.
There are 13 episodes altogether, 10 of them the competition itself, the last three episodes are Masterclasses from the two judges. However as GEM did not show the Masterclass episodes last time from series two, so I am not expecting the Masterclasses from series three will be shown either, which is a pity.
Goodness, GEM is fast-tracking this 2013 Christmas Special at 6:30pm (follows by Ep 4 below) which was just aired in the UK 5 days ago:
