The BBC may have lost The Great British Bake Off to Channel 4, but they are holding onto the baking professional spin off, Bake Off Creme de la Crème, which will air on BBC Two for its second series.

Joined with a new host – former Mock The Week presenter, Angus Deayton – the competition returns with a revamped knockout format as five teams battle to stay in the competition and make it through to the next heat in their half of the draw.

Filmed over 36 hours, the teams must complete two grueling challenges. The first taking three hours – they must make 36 identical moka au cafe slices and 36 identical napoleons.

The second challenge requires each team member to pull out all the stops, they must make an extraordinary showpiece dessert using the classic Peach Melba as starting point. Each team will be scored and the lowest scoring team will be leaving the competition.
