CHANNEL 4 producers are on the hunt for some people to take part in The Great British Bake Off’s spin off show – and they’ve taken a great interest in the Lancashire area.

The Great British Bake off: An Extra Slice is a spin off show hosted by Jo Brand.

On the show, Brand and her celebrity guests review the contestants' efforts and creations as well as view unseen clips from the main show.

Audience members might have their own home bakes discussed on the show and praised (or torn apart) by the star-studded panel.

A spokesperson for the team said: “As with previous series, we’d love our audience to bring their home bakes to the studio and potentially have them discussed on the show.

“We love seeing your creative designs, unusual ingredients and quirky ways of displaying your bakes…and remember, on An Extra Slice, we celebrate both your baking triumphs and your baking disasters!

“The more inventive your bake, the more likely we are to feature it on the show.”

Producers put the advert out in numerous Lancashire Facebook groups – and many people have been getting excited about it.

They have been tagging their friends and encouraging them to “apply for this”.

If you would like to take part in The Great British Bakeoff: Extra Slice audience then email:

You will be asked to provide some personal information as well as some more information about your baking ability and the bake you would like to bring to the show.

When is the Great British Bake Off back?

The Great British Bake Off will return to TV screens on September 21, Channel 4 has confirmed.

Judges Paul Hollywood and Dame Prue Leith and presenters Matt Lucas and Noel Fielding will be back in the show’s famous tent for another series of signature, technical and showstopper bakes.

The date was announced on social media with the four names holding mugs featuring the message “Bake Off is back”.
