The Great British Bake Off

8pm, Channel 4

It’s only the second round, but last week’s star baker, Jürgen, already looks like a strong contender. Paul Hollywood refers to the German physicist as konditor meister, which translates to “master baker.” That has to be a step up from a handshake. After last year’s youth-heavy intake, it’s good to see a lot of older contestants, even if Prue Leith’s supposed doppelgänger Maggie appears to be struggling during a tense Biscuit Week. Before a “sandwiched jammy biscuit” technical and a showstopper that requires them to build childhood toys out of biscuit, the bakers must make 24 brandy snaps (“It’s not a brandy snap if it doesn’t snap,” warns Leith).
