Who are the Great British Bake Off hosts and judges?

Matt Lucas and Noel Fielding return to host the show once again.

Matt took over from Sandi Toksvig in 2020 and began with a parody of PM Boris Johnson's coronavirus briefings.

The judges also remain the same with Paul and Prue making the decisions as to who gets Star Baker and who leaves the tent each week.

In 2020, Peter Sawkins became the youngest-ever winner of the show at 20 years old.

Speaking ahead of the 2021 series, Hollywood criticised the "disgusting behaviour" of trolls who targeted some of last year's contestants including finalist Laura Adlington.

He said: "I had to come out last year in support of Laura, because it was out of order.

"It had gone out of control, and it is so easy in lockdown when people have got nothing else to do, and all they're going to do is bombard someone they're not particularly happy with, and you can't feed into people like that, you've got to be really careful – and so I had to say something.

"I think ultimately, you're always going to get sides, you know, it's like football – you're always going to get one side against another, but I think ultimately as long as you support them, and Bake Off do, I saw what was happening and I had to say something."
