A new series of The Great British Bake Off will make its debut on Channel 4 in 2017 – not 2018 as previously thought.
In a statement, Channel 4 said: "We are planning to broadcast the next series of The Great British Bake Off in 2017."
Bake Off had been casting for new bakers in a forthcoming series. Applications closed last Friday.
There has been no announcement of who will host the show, nor who will judge alongside Paul Hollywood.
