As with all episodes of the series, since it moved from the BBC, each instalment will last for one hour 15 minutes each.
The 2019 series will be hosted by Sandi Toksvog and Noel Fielding, while Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith return as judges.

Both Bake Off and An Extra Slice will both be on All 4 after they start airing on Channel 4.
