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

If you want to be inspired by yummy recipes and stay organised next year, the Official 2016 Bake Off Calendar, Family Organiser, Slim Calendar and Diary are all available to order now with Free UK Delivery direct from us the Publishers. Worldwide delivery also available

Firstly, we want to say a Big Thank You to everyone who came to see us at Spring Fair last week! It has been another great year and was lovely to see some familiar faces as well as some new ones too 🙂

As the Market Leaders of official licensed calendars, cards, dairies and wrap, us hard-working bods at Danilo have been working closely with some great Licensors to ensure we bring you the best titles in TV, Music, Film, Gaming, Sport and Glamour!

And we have been so pleased to be able to demonstrate some of our fantastic 2014 / 2015 brands at the NEC last week.

But just in case you couldn’t make it up to see us, we wanted to share with you lovely people a taster of the exciting things we have planned for this year…

  • As we have secured new multi brand licenses with the likes of Disney, Marvel, Warner Bros, Fox and the BBC, it means we are super-excited to be able to bring you titles such as Winnie the Pooh, Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, TV Show Arrow, Amazing Spiderman 2, Godzilla, American Dad, Guardians of the Galaxy, funny sitcom Modern Family and new computer game Disney Infinity.
  • We also have the licence to publish The Great British Bake Off calendars and diaries this year, and signed a deal direct with Paul Hollywood, who judges and presents the show with Mary Berry.
  • Another major signing for us is the new Doctor Who in the shape of the regenerated 13th incarnation – as explained by Matt Smith in the Christmas Day special before he turned into Peter Capaldi. We will be publishing both new and classic Dr Who calendars, diaries, cards and wrap featuring iconic villains as well as Peter as the new Doctor in the latest TV series showing on BBC1 later this year
