Frank Views – Judge
Outspoken and critical, Frank’s comments can leave contestants crushed. However, his praise, and above all his firm handshake, are rewards worth waiting for.
Dainty Olden – Judge
Ladylike and refined, Dainty is an elderly and experienced baker who dresses in quite a homely way, enjoys the odd tipple and always tries to find something kind to say about the contestants’ bakes.
Cormac Relief – Presenter
Instantly recognisable as a madcap presenter by his outlandish clothes and bizarre hairstyle, Cormac is known for putting on funny voices and for dreadful puns.
Chelsea Bun – Contestant
Intensely serious, Chelsea is highly skilled and concentrates hard when she is cooking. Neatly presented, with spectacles, hair tied back severely, and a large, practical apron, she is a talent to be reckoned with.
Ginger Bread – Contestant
Ginger wears pretty, trendy clothes and takes great care with her appearance. She seems warm, friendly and a good laugh and she is very popular, both with the other contestants and the viewers, despite her below-average baking skills.
Phil O’Pastry – Contestant
Scatty, rather untidy in appearance and with a workspace that looks as if a bomb has gone off in it, Phil is a loner who can be overemotional. He has a fiery temperament which is somewhat disguised by his soft Irish brogue.
D.C.I. Laura Norder – able to get to the heart of mysteries in what is admittedly an idiosyncratic way, she is always happy to hear others ideas and involves everyone present in solving the crime!
