    Last year after the final they re-aired all of the previous series, until mid -December-ish. I can't remember whether they were nightly or weekly, but it was on BBC2 or 3 and I guess the i-player. So really just keep your eye's peeled after the bake off finishes.
    Ahh ok, was kinda hoping you were gonna say you found them elsewhere online :lol: Will definitely keep my eyes peeled though!

    Yeah. Jane looks nice, but I'm not so sure about Andrew, I think he might be one of the first to go. He just looks like he's gonna be a bit unskilled but arrogant, of course I might be being too judgemental, and he might actually be great.
    Actually reading Lee's mini biography I think he might go quite far.Val reminds me a bit of Diana, but hopefully there will be enough freezers this year, but if not we know the first person to blame for the liquid ice cream.
    And Louise just looks a bit scary not a fan of her.

    Haha yes I love Benjamina too!

    Literally can't decide who is my favourite right now. Selasi looks like a really friendly guy and so does Andrew. I think Lee will be good, too and Jane.

    Oh dear... The BBC has already been accused of gender stereotyping for having the male bakers whisk blue icing and the female bakers whisk pink in their promo shoot... I'm not a rampant feminist by any means but even I think this was a silly decision with an easily predictable outcome by the BBC. Why not mix it up and give every baker a different icing colour? Still, it's probably been blown out of proportion by critics.

    Yeah, Andrew looks a bit wimpy, don't know why. I'm excited to see what they are actually like as people!

    After the first episode, we should all predict the winner and see if anyone guesses correctly.

    I agree it seems kinda unnecessary to give the men blue and the women pink. They could of just had them whipping up cake-batter colour stuff instead...

    Haha dw about the reps!

    Thanks for remembering results day

    I got:
    English Lit: A* (100% UMS)
    History: A* (92% UMS)
    Philosophy: A* (99% UMS)

    I was so shocked, particularly by the Philosophy because I thought I had flunked the exam. I don't understand it at all. But I'm delighted!
