Whether you’re a baking enthusiast or not, the UK has been under the spell of The Great British Bake Off for over 10 years now – and it’s about to fall under its spell again.

Channel 4’s hit show is back next week, with 12 new bakers all entering the tent and pulling out all the stops to impress judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood with their cakes, pies, breads and more.

Season 13 will once again see Matt Lucas and Noel Fielding return as hosts, overseeing proceedings and vetting contestants. One baker hoping to stand out among the crowd is Will, a former charity director with a background in architecture and a love of DIY. But what treats will he bake for the judges and what is his history with baking?

Here’s everything you need to know about Will ahead of his Bake Off debut.

Who is Will?

Will be Channel 4

Age: 45

Of: London

Use: Former association director

Will now lives in London but grew up outside Bristol and went to Liverpool University. A father, he lives with his wife and three children, as well as their cat named Tiggy.

Will was previously a charity director and has a background in architecture. He now spends his time with his children, practicing crafts and carpentry or cooking new dishes.

He first became passionate about baking at the age of 2, when he transformed his mother’s pastry scraps into jam pies. His favorite flavors are salted caramel and paprika, and he once made an anatomically correct model of his own heart out of cookies. He said: “It took forever, but it looked gorgeous and tasted great. At the time, I thought it was the craziest thing I’d ever done!”
