Mediaset Spain's network and Boxfish are working on the Spanish adaptation of The Great British Bake Off, a British format from BBC Studios that's been adapted in more than 30 countries.
After bringing back format My Mom Cooks Better than Yours to Spanish screens, Telecinco is now working on the local adaptation of The Great British Bake Off, a British format distributed by BBC Studios.
Produced in collaboration with Boxfish, this adaptation joins various other international editions of the show, more than 30 in total, including the US, Germany, France, Australia, Brazil, Argentina, Italy and Holland, among others.
This will be the second time Mediaset Spain - which owns Telecinco - attempts to find the best amateur baker in the country after producing a similar format back in 2014. Titled Deja sitio para el postre, the show was hosted by Raquel Sánchez and aired on Canal 4.

The Great British Bake Off aired for the first time in 2010 on the UK's BBC Two and later on moved on to BBC One after gaining popularity. Last year, the format generated a bit of a controversy after the BBC sold the rights to the format to Channel 4, which became Bake Off's new home in the UK.
After seven seasons on the BBC, where it said goodbye to 16 million viewers, the brand new season of the show on Channel 4 became the most watched broadcast for the network since 2012 with a 30.4% share.
