We've been sitting pretty and patient on our soggy bottoms for the best part of a year waiting to find out when the seventh series of The Great British Bake Off will return to our telly screens; and now we FINALLY KNOW.

What with the Rio Olympics dominating the BBC's schedule over the next few weeks, Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood will be bringing GBBO back to the box on August 24th; 3 days after the sporting EXTRAVAGANZA's closing ceremony.
Chatting to The Sun, a production source-type person explained: "Bake Off is a juggernaut unlike anything else on the TV. It pulls in huge, huge viewing figures but the bosses still have to think practically.
"The Olympics is a big deal for the Beeb and they are basically wiping their prime-time schedule to show all of the action.
"The Bake Off is the one of the pinnacles of their year so they're not going to waste it. The view is if it starts on ten million plus viewers, it'll stay there all series. It just makes sense for it to start after the Olympic action has finished."
All very exciting, really.
