MSN lifts the lid of BBC 2’s smash hit cookery show.
The third series of The Great British Bake Off (GBBO) has gone from strength to strength like a Paul Hollywood loaf. Episode three saw 4.5 million viewers tune in to the cookery show that aims to find Britain's best amateur baker. Over 10 weeks the contestants are tested on their cakes, pastry, bread and patisserie skills, which are judged by baking heavyweights Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry. Here's a look at this year's show plus its past winners.

Normally there's a repeat on BBC HD on a Saturday afternoon/early evening, so that those of us who can't watch on a Tuesday get a chance to catch up. Last Saturday there wasn't, which means that I've missed what has become a very good show to watch.
For those of us without Sky, or who can't be bothered with BBC i-player, there seems no way of getting a repeat. Such a shame, given the amount of tired old nonsense they endlessly flog to death. Another repeat of "Flog It", anyone?
