Writes Oliver Palmen

COULD you be set to follow in the footstep's of Somerset's baking vet Rosie? Local lady Rosie Brandreth-Poynter reached the final four of this year's series of the Great British Bake Off.

And now, the show's makers are looking for people to make up their Class of 2020.

Applications are open now.

A spokesman said: "Who is the best baker you know? We are looking for Britain’s best home bakers to enter the tent.

"Are you in loaf with baking?

"The hunt is on to find Britain’s best amateur bread-kneaders, cake-makers and jelly- setters, and it just might be you.

"If you or someone you know is a smart cookie in the kitchen, maybe it’s time to take a whisk and apply."

The deadline for all applications is Sunday, January 5, 2020.
