Bake Off: Creme de la Creme is a brand new eight-part series that sees teams of professional pastry chefs compete against each other.
Fifteen teams of three professional chefs will be going head-to-head.
They hail from all sorts of kitchens, famous hotels, top restaurants, high-end patisseries, supermarket bakeries and the armed forces among others.
The series will be presented by Michelin-starred chef Tom Kerridge, and the chefs have some rather successful judges to impress.
Benoit Blin, Chef Patissier at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saison, Cherish Finden, Executive Pastry Chef at The Langham, and Claire Clark MBE, who was twice named Britain’s Best Pastry Chef, will be picking the winners. Bake Off: Creme De La Creme will air on BBC Two in 2016.
Emmerdale star Shirley Stelfox has died following a short battle with cancer.
The 74-year-old actress, known to millions for her role as no-nonsense Edna Birch on the ITV soap, passed away at home last week with her daughter Helena by her side.
John Whiston, ITV’s creative director for soaps, has led the tributes to the popular star. “The family here at Emmerdale are deeply saddened by Shirley’s passing. It is hard to imagine Emmerdale without her,” Whiston commented. “We offer our condolences to Shirley’s family and share our feeling of loss with the millions of viewers who will miss Edna enormously.”
