HAVE you got what it takes to bake in the iconic white tent?
Producers of the Great British Bake Off are asking people in the Salisbury area to apply to be on the hit cooking show in 2024.
A spokesman for the popular Channel 4 contest said: “We’re looking for people with a real passion for baking and we want to hear what you’re good at, but also what you’re not so good at.
“We’re not expecting you to be brilliant at everything; this just helps us to get a clearer idea of what kind of baker you are.”
Potential entrants need to send at least five photos of their baking repertoire, including bread, two types of pastry, cake and biscuits and use the official forms on the Bake Off site.
They also have to send a photo and can, if they wish, upload a one-minute video clip.
Organisers say they take applicants’ skill, enthusiasm, drive and love of baking into consideration.
“We are looking for lively characters that are comfortable being filmed,” they added.
“Initial selection will be based on the application forms and telephone interviews and we’ll be looking for a mix of contestants to reflect the range in age, location, gender and diversity of amateur bakers in Britain.”
Applications close on January 2, 2024, and are only open to amateur bakers. Successful applicants will then be contacted by the production team.
