THE Roaring Twenties is next week’s theme on Channel 4’s The Great British Bake Off, which will see remaining contestants bake a number of challenging sweet treats.
Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith are back to judge all of the baking, but what else can fans expect in episode five and when is it on?
What will happen in episode five of Bake Off?
As the weeks go by, it seems as if the challenges are getting rather difficult for the bakers, who will be taking on the Roaring Twenties in week five.
Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig introduce the bakers to a special round in which they must create confectionery inspired that particular theme.
The signature challenge, in particular, will involve a decorative twist on custard pies, while the technical task will see how well this year’s bakers are with their timing and consistency.
Lastly, for the Showstopper challenge, they will work on creating a three-tiered knockout inspired by an alcoholic beverage of their own choosing.
It will then be up to Paul and Prue to decide which baker is deserving of the Star Baker title, while another contestant will ultimately face the boot from the cooking show.
When is episode five of Bake Off on TV?
The Great British Bake Off 2019 will return on TUESDAY (September 24, 2019) at 8pm on Channel 4.
The show will run every Tuesday for eight more weeks.
The final is likely to be on November 5, 2019 – but this is still to be confirmed.
If you miss the hour and a half long episode you can catch it on Channel 4+1 or the All 4.

What happened in episode four?
For Dairy Week, the contestants had to make a decorative Signature Bundt cake in which the mixture used cultured dairy products such as buttermilk or yogurt in order to make a sponge that was relatively moist.
The Technical challenge was 12 Maids of Honour (aka a lemon curd tart) which dates all the way back to the Tudors – and something Henry VIII loved so much that he kept the recipe under lock and key.
While the intricate Showstopper task was to make Indian milk desserts called Mishti, which are found at the centre of Indian Weddings and celebrations.
You’re not wrong to think that dairy already plays a big part in most of the other weeks but as they headed into the tent, the contestants admitted focusing on just dairy made them appreciate all that it encompasses.
Henry explained: “I didn’t realise that dairy is not only a cow. There’s goat, sheep, buffalo, horse…”
Steph got her time in the limelight as the latest contestant to be named Star Baker.
It was a great week for Steph who literally excelled in all three challenges this week, thrilling Paul and Prue with her sensational choice of flavours.
The judges were absolutely thrilled with her chocolate and raspberry buttermilk cake, even if it was a little too rich for Prue’s liking.
Phil didn’t have the worst time in Dairy Week but his decoration in both the Signature Challenge and the Showstopper was what really let him down in the end.
His simplistic garden-inspired mishti elderflower rockery and pistachio roses with blueberry butterfly failed on all fronts for Paul and Prue.
He was consequently booted of the baking competition.
