The Great British Bake Off is back and the 2019 edition marks the tenth series of the popular home-baking show. Noel, Sandi, Prue and Paul have returned to our screens and the contestants are already battling it out for Star Baker. What better way to play along at home than with Bake Off bingo?
There are so many classic lines and buzzwords (and innuendos) we expect to hear on the show, and even if you’ve not seen the show or know what to expect, you can still play along too. Or if online bingo is more your thing, check out the latest available rooms and cash prizes at: https://bingo.paddypower.com/c/bingo-jackpots.
We’ve listed 25 scenarios we can expect to see, so tick these off as you go. The winner is the first person to shout out when they hear or see each of the below and ultimately the person who has the most wins by the end of the night. Bonus points if you’re eating cake while playing/watching – because let’s be honest, are you even a Great British Bake Off fan if you’re not watching with treats?
Without further ado, here are the situations to look out for.

- Contestant’s Technical Bake looks spot-on
- Contestant claims they have never heard of the Technical Bake (or any of its ingredients) or how to make it
- Contestant’s Technical Bake looks like a car crash (bonus point if it is then slated by Paul or Prue)
