Britain’s much-loved baking competition is due back on our screens at any point now, and with Peter Sawkins taking the winner’s title last year, the anticipation for this year’s bakers is high.

There’s no confirmed airing date as of yet, but fans can expect to see The Great British Bake Off (GBBO) as late as September, to match last years delayed viewings, which were kicked off with an impression of Boris Johnson by co-host and comedian Matt Lucas.

In light of all the excitement, here’s a look at what the previous winners of Bake Off are doing now.
