As The Great British Bake Off triumphantly returns to our screens, An Extra Slice is back to bring us more treats from the tent. Each week Jo Brand welcomes a panel of celebrity Bake Off fans to unpack the best bits from the show, as well as unseen footage and an exclusive interview with the baker who’s leaving the competition. To get the Bake Off juices flowing, Jo welcomes presenter AJ Odudu and An Extra Slice favourite Richard Osman to discuss the new bubble of bakers and get stuck into Cake Week. Comedian and Extra Slice regular Tom Allen has invited an array of home bakers to bravely present him with their delights. Plus, Jo rummages through viewer pictures – from the quarantine queens to the kitchen crime scenes. In the first Signature challenge of the series, will the panel go batty for Battenberg? What did they make of Paul’s testing Technical? And which bakers stood out as the heroes in an ambitious first Showstopper?
