Bake Off 2023: Meet the contestants for the 14th series of The Great British Bake Off

The contestants for the new series of The Great British Bake Off have been announced.

Among the bakers introduced in this year’s series are a scientist, an accountant and a retired flight attendant.

The show is set to return on 26 September, with Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith reprising their roles as judges.

The hosting team has seen a shake-up this year as This Morning star Alison Hammond takes over from Matt Lucas, who quit after the 2022 series.

She’ll join Noel Fielding who returns for his sixth year on the show.

Here’s a rundown of all the contestants set to appear on this year’s Bake Off…

Abbi, 27

Veg grower and delivery driver from Cumbria

Yorkshire-born Abbi learnt to bake from her mum. She then became fascinated by baking throughout history, particularly in the Victorian era. Now, she forages and grows many of her own ingredients. “I am very creative and love making actual real-life places and scenes out of cake, but I would struggle with making something very neat and chic,” she said.

Amos, 43

Deli and grocery manager from North London

Hospitality professional Amos grew up in Nottingham with his sister and his mum, inspired him with her baking ability. He now lives in North London in a converted church, which he says compares with his baking style: “traditional with a modern twist”.

Cristy, 33

Mum and PA from East London

Mum of four Cristy draws inspiration from her Israeli heritage and her husband’s Jamaican roots for her bakes. She can also solve a Rubik’s cub in under four minutes! “Alison and Noel were one of the best parts about the tent they are both so lovely and funny,” she teased. “Seeing them bounce off each other and having a laugh all the time… They are the perfect duo.”


Dan, 42

Civil engineering resource planner from Cheshire

Dan’s interest in cooking was sparked by a trip to South America in 2007. It was his mother-in-law who taught him how to make the perfect shortcrust pastry. Since then, Dan has been a fanatic for pies and pastries. “My strengths are my flavour combos,” Dan said; “My weakness…overthinking bakes and doing too much!”

Dana, 25
