Applications are now open for The Great British Bake Off 2021

Let's face it, we all have time to practice our baking skills this year. From banana bread to cook-ins to at-home versions of our favorite takeaways, kitchens across the UK are heating up in 2020. If you've discovered during lockdown that you have a knack for baking, you may be wondering how to apply for The Great British Bake Off 2021. Luckily, applications are open.

The Great British Bake Off has its own dedicated website where baking enthusiasts can bid to enter the tent, and applications are already being accepted for the twelfth series.

If online services aren't for you, there are other options. As the website states, "If you are unable to apply online and would like an application form mailed to you or require assistance, please email or call 0207 067 4837 quoting your full name, full address ( including postal code) and phone number."

You'd better act fast, though, as the deadline to submit your application is December 6, 2020.

Prospective Nadiya Husseins or Candice Browns must be 16 years old on January 1, 2021 to compete. Season 12 of the beloved show will air between April and August 2021, so it's important for you to clear your calendar.

Although affected by the epidemic, "GBBO" is currently entering its eleventh season, but it has still made major adjustments. The team of 120 people had to live in a self-contained biosphere for six weeks. It's possible that the exact same setup could appear in 2021 as well. But fingers crossed next year’s contestants will be able to display their work more freely.
