The lineup for this year’s highly anticipated Great British Bake Off has been revealed – and includes a competitor from Cornwall looking to take up the challenge.

Among the 12 amateur bakers who hope to get Judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith off the ground this year and win the coveted award is Marc, a bronze resin sculptor who lives in the county.

The 51-year-old dabbled in baking as a form of therapy after being involved in a motorcycle accident in 2016 which resulted in the loss of his left leg.

Marc, who was born in Leicester, started out by baking before moving on to cakes and pastries and has arrived on stage where he is preparing to wow the nation with his work and win a few star baker awards.

He decided to enter the contest to show his daughters that you can overcome life’s obstacles and take on new challenges.

Speaking ahead of the series launch, Marc said: “I just remember feeling the very positive and exciting energy in the tent.”

Among the 11 other contestants facing Marc are a pantomime producer from West Sussex, a music teacher from Worcestershire and a pharmacy distributor from London.

This year’s series was delayed by the coronavirus pandemic, but filming was finally able to begin and ended towards the end of last month.

Kelly Webb Lamb, an executive at Channel 4, previously said the program would look the same as usual.

Speaking during this year’s Edinburgh Virtual TV Festival, she said the cast and crew had lived and filmed “in a bubble” and adhered to strict health and safety measures.

Speaking about this year’s series, Judge Prue said the security measures put in place by the production team made her feel safe.

“I ended up thinking, this is the safest place in all of England,” she said.

“The 130 people, which includes the hotel staff and all the crew and all the support staff and all the bakers, we have all been tested to death.

“We had our temperatures taken every morning. So when we were in the tent we were allowed to behave in absolutely free fashion and that was great because it meant the viewer would see Bake Off as they are used to. . “

The 2020 edition of the hit show is the first for comedian Matt Lucas, who will co-host the series alongside Noel Fielding after replacing Sandi Toksvig.
