It's back!

Who knew soggy bottoms would be so popular, but clearly they are as Great British Bake Off returns to our TV screens for a seventh series.

Chetna Makan, who reached the semi-final in series five, joined Paul Ross on Wednesday morning to look ahead to the smash hit show starring Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood.

Makan revealed the process contestants go through on the show, which is filmed around a month before it airs.

Of course, that means keeping the identity of the winner secret until the end of the series. Not always the easiest thing to do - especially when you've got kids!

Judge Hollywood is also known for his harsh opinions, but Makan explained he's quite different in person.

We're sure Mary would approve of his soft centre!
