GBBO 2012 judges&hosts

Hooray! After thoroughly enjoying The Great Australian Bake Off recently, we are finally going to see the original The Great British Bake Off too.
GEM is set to air the series starting on Tuesday, September 10, 2013 at 8:30pm. Checking the TV guide, it seems they are going straight to series 3 from last year, unless they have already shown the first two series without my knowledge as I don’t watch GEM that often – oh I do hope NOT. There are 14 episodes in series 3, so 14 weeks of filling our reality-cooking-show hunger for the next 3 months, well that is if GEM is not going to mess around with the scheduling of the show, hopefully!
And don’t google if you do not want to know who the winner was! LOL…

Update September 10, 2013: Just started watching, LOL, it is not series 3, in fact after checking online it is series 2! There are 10 episodes altogether in Series 2, eight episodes for the competition, and the final two episodes featuring the MasterClasses.
