The Danilo team, alongside the rest of the UK, are highly excited to see Master bakers Mary Berry & Paul Hollywood and the hilarious presenting duo Mel & Sue returning to our TV screens for the sixth series of The Great British Bake Off.

To celebrate such an occasion, we’ve put together our 5 top reasons on why we love this fantasic programme so much:

Reason 1:  Mel and Sue’s hilarious hosting

Comedy Duo Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc keep us chuckling throughout the GBBO series with their funny puns and innuendos. Favourites of ours include “Four Bakers are fighting for their lives… Is that too dramatic?” “It’s never too dramatic. It’s cakes, biscuits and desserts we’re talking about…” “Plus I let a tiger loose in there.” and Wow, to be commended on your nuts by Mary Berry. You’ve had a great day, Nancy”

Reason 2: The quirky contestants

What we really love about this show are the contestants. Their passion for baking shines through and with sweet (pardon the pun), down-to-earth personalities to match, we can’t help but cheer on all of them!

Reason 3: The mouth-watering, amazing creations

Some of quirky creations the bakers have made over the years have been creatively brilliant. Anyone remember Frances’ ‘vegetable’ canapés or Christine’s Shortbread Bavarian Clock Tower? Yummy and very impressive to look at too!

Reason 4: Paul Hollywood’s Gaze

With those lovely blue eyes, we cannot resist the gaze of this baking woman’s crumpet. Plus we get to spend all next year with Paul gazing lovingly at his official 2016 Calendar. Hooray!

Reason 5: Reminds us of baking together as a family

Ultimately, The Great British Bake Off captures something quintessential about what it is to be British and perhaps even stirs up feelings of nostalgia, reminding us of a time when we baked with our families.

Great British Bake Off starts tonight at 8pm on BBC 1
