Athena July 11, 2016 Author Share July 11, 2016 UK news for the next series and beyond. BBC will premiere it in early August and go for the usual 10 weeks. It'll compete with the Olympics, but this is the most watched TV show in the UK so it won't be hurting too much. BBC have also announced two Christmas specials including an "all-star" special bake off with four past contestants competing. ITV is still trying to woo and poach the show from the BBC amidst negotiations. Paul has said none of them want to leave the BBC, but it's ultimately up to the production company and if BBC can pay the price to renew it. If the show gets bought by ITV, there will not be a bake off next year due to a contract cooling off clause. Here are the sources which includes spoilers for S06/Baking Show S03: Evening Standard and The Telegraph. Link to comment
