Christmas Bake Off trailer sees old favourites return - and a very Scrooge-like Paul Hollywood

Updated: 

Fans of The Great British Bake Off can rejoice in the fact there are two more episodes with full cast Mary Berry, Paul Hollywood, Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins on the BBC before the show moves to Channel 4 next year.

And, although they'll have to wait until Christmas Day to see all the action from inside the tent, a new trailer has dropped to keep things ticking along.

The two-part festive special sees eight previous bakers reunite in the tent for a showdown, with Mary and Paul presiding over their tasty efforts.

In typical style, the grumpiest bloke in the show - bread man Paul - is seen looking like an absolute Scrooge as he says "Bah humbug". Classic Paul.

We're also treated to Mel and Sue wearing Christmas pudding outfits, of course, and the likes of familiar faces Howard Middleton, James Morton, Chetna Makan and Norman Calder.

With pretty much everybody in Christmas jumpers and with plenty of seasonal morsels being whipped up - in-between moments of real cooking catastrophe - it looks set to be a real must-watch on the day.

The first part will broadcast on BBC One on Christmas Day with the second following on Boxing Day.
