Budding Bakers Needed

Are you a budding Bakers ๐ŸŽ‚๐ŸŽ‚๐ŸŽ‚๐ŸŽ‚๐ŸŽ‚๐ŸŽ‚๐ŸŽ‚๐ŸŽ‚๐ŸŽ‚ #blackbakers Am sending this forward got it from a friend.


Great British Bake Off seeks Black Contestants!! Hello, My name is Kat and I am writing about 'The Great British Bake Off' - I hope you are well in today's current climate.


I wanted to make contact as Bake Off has launched its applications for 2021 and I'm trying to spread the word, reaching people that haven't thought about applying before.


We want the show to be really inclusive and representational of modern Britain, making it the best yet.


I wondered if you'd be kind enough to share our casting flyer/poster & application information within the Black communityโ€“ potentially on social media/within a newsletter?


It would be great to find some keen amateur bakers amongst your volunteers & families you support. I've attached our flyer & information below โ€“ I'd love to know if you are happy to share. Thanks so much, I look forward to hearing back from you.


Kindest regards, Kat


Those who wish to take part can fill out an online form by visiting gbbo.take-part.co.uk. They can also email applyforbakeoff@loveproductions.co.uk or call 0207 067 4837 stating their full name, full address (including postcode) and phone number.


Applications at 11.59 pm on Sunday, December 6, so fans only have a few weeks to get their forms in if they wish to take part.


However, filling out the form is only the beginning, as there is an extensive audition process that comes before selecting the successful candidates.


Those who have their applications accepted will have to take part in a phone interview, screen test, and perhaps even a real-life technical challenge.


Love Productions, which create the series, said it was looking for enthusiasm and a love of baking, as well as lively personalities who are happy to be filmed in different scenarios.


People of all backgrounds are welcome to apply, as the series is an advocate of diversity and giving everyone a fair chance.


To put fans at ease during the coronavirus pandemic, the Bake Off team said: "We are closely monitoring the situation regarding Covid-19 and we are following the advice of Public Health England.


As a result, we may adjust how or when we carry out auditions. The safety and welfare of everyone involved in our productions is always paramount."
