The Great British Bake Off's new teaser is a real treat

The Great British Bake Off is coming back, and people are already talking about the show's wacky new trailer. 

The first look at a brand new Great British Bake Off is here, and it's hinting at a quirky new direction for the beloved series.

Fans were expecting a fresh feel to Bake Off when it was announced the show would move from the BBC to the UK's Channel 4. The move saw the exit of legendary judge Mary Berry, as well as hosts Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc. 

The team, with the exception of Paul Hollywood, will be replaced by Prue Leith (filling Berry's shoes), and comedians Sue Toksvig and Noel Fielding. 

The series eight trailer has confirmed what most fans anticipated - a whopping new budget and a kooky new feel. 

The stop-motion clip is something like a trip through a fantasy world of singing croissants and smiling profiteroles, but the creators confirmed their intent was the celebrate a common "love of cakes and bakes" and to reassure fans the show will maintain its "warmth".

The quintessentially British centrepiece of the trailer is undoubtedly it's song choice: We All Stand Together by former Beatle and living legend, Paul McCartney.
