Bake Off: Creme da la Creme start date confirmed.

The Version can confirm the start date for The Great British Bake Off's spin-off series, Bake Off: Creme de la Creme which will see professional bakers go head-to-head.

In a different format to the regular show, host Tom Kerridge welcomes three teams of pastry chefs to the first heat of the contest, which airs at 9pm on Tuesday 29th March. 

The chefs are challenged to make more than 100 perfect miniature pastries in just three hours for the judges.  They'll also have to reinvent the apple crumble in a showstopper challenge and produce an edible sculpture.

The new eight-part series will air on BBC Two, the original home of The Great British Bake Off.
