The Great British Bake Off will return to TV screens on August 24, three days after the end of the Rio Olympic Games.

The 2015 series was won by Nadiya Hussain.
A total of 15.1 million viewers tuned in to watch Hussain, 31, being named as the winner.
The show announced earlier in the year that viewers will get a double festive helping as two Christmas specials are planned.
