    Hi Ruth, I have sent in an application for the Great British Bake Off on 17th February to Love productions but cant for the life of me find the closing date for this years competition. Do you know what it is as all of a sudden im wondering if I missed the closing date? Also I haven't had any kind of response from them to say that they received anything….
    I would also love to say that I love your blog and words of wisdom from a past contestant are as good as gold!!!! xx

  6. Ruth says:

    I'm sure you've not missed the closing date – last year auditions ran until pretty much the start of filming which was early May. If you're in doubt email them at Love to check, they won't mind! Good luck and let us know how you go on! xx
