BBC Worldwide Africa renews The Great South African Bake Off for a 3rd season on BBC Lifestyle set for broadcast in late 2017.
BBC Worldwide has renewed The Great South African Bake Off for a third season that will be broadcast in late-2017 on BBC Lifestyle (DStv 174).
The 10 episodes of third season of the baking show based on The Love Productions format and produced by Rapid Blue, will once again be filmed in Johannesburg during winter.
Contestants will likely be vetted even more stringently than before after contestant Asfeyah Mia awkwardly left the second season midway through the show after questions surfaced about her amateur baking status.
Applications have opened and will close on Monday 12 June with more information about how to enter at www.bbcsouthafrica.com.
BBC Worldwide says the second season of The Great South African Bake Off pulled an average of 100 000 viewers per episode and made BBC Lifestyle the number one rated channel in its competitor set on DStv.
