We finally have our first look at Channel 4's new set for The Great British Bake Off – and it's not all that different.

Mary Berry, Mel and Sue might no longer be around, but the tent seems as familiar as ever based on the overhead shot we've got of it, a picture of calm before the bakers get all panicked over soggy bottoms.

What we can see in closer detail is where our new set of judges and hosts – Paul Hollywood, Prue Leith, Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig – will be discussing who is Star Baker and who is going home.

Again, this seems to have stayed faithful to the BBC version, right down to the bunting, but we'll wait and see if there's as much innuendo taking place in it.

Last month, it was confirmed that the new episodes of Bake Off will last a total of 75 minutes on Channel 4 but, don't worry, it's not because they've added sob stories and it's only because of the ad breaks.

It was also announced that Jo Brand will be following Paul across the channels by continuing to host companion show An Extra Slice.

But will either of those shows have to compete for ratings with BBC2's new show The Big Family Cooking Showdown, hosted by Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain and Zoe Ball, which is definitely NOT meant as a rival.

"You can't commission shows thinking, 'Oh that's going to be a massive hit'. It was commissioned before Bake Off went to Channel 4," said BBC2's new controller Patrick Holland.

The Great British Bake Off is expected to air on Channel 4 later this year.
