Bake Off fans could barely contain their excitement as the teaser for the new series dropped.
The clip shared on social media showed the camera panning through some dense trees.
As the leaves thin out, the well-known theme tune of the Channel 4 show plays and the camera moves down towards the famous Bake Off tent.
“Loaf is in the air... The Great British Bake Off. Coming Soon,” said the post.
