The search for Britain's best amateur baker continues with Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins. Ten bakers remain and this week their bread-making skills are put to the test. Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry keep a close eye on the bakers, who face three increasingly complicated challenges over two days and have to work with yeast for the first time.

The contestants start with the signature bake, a free-form flavoured loaf that produces a variety of interesting results, including a combination of chocolate and onion. Next is the technical challenge - focaccia - that really separates the wheat from the chaff. Finally, a mammoth six-hour challenge requires the bakers to create a display bread basket that is filled with 24 bread rolls.
