Meet the Hosts of The Great British Baking Show ‘The Professionals’: Who Are Tom Allen & Liam Charles?

Hosts Tom Allen and Liam Charles co-host The Great British Baking Show on Netflix. While Tom is a comedian and TV personality, Liam is a British baker and television host who previously participated in Season 8 of The Great British Bake Off.

A spin-off of The Great British Baking Show, the British baking competition series “The Great British Baking Show: The Professionals” is available on Netflix. It puts a variety of skilled pastry cooks against one another in various baking challenges. They originate from some of the best hotels, eateries, and companies in the UK. Professional chefs create exceptional desserts in terms of their looks, textures, and, most importantly, flavors to compete for the title of best pastry chef in the nation.

The competition consists of 12 teams in total. Three rounds make up the competition: six pairs are reduced to three, followed by another six pairs that are reduced to three, and finally, the winning three teams from each heat compete against one another in the final. Miniatures and showpieces are the two main obstacles in most episodes. Although there are some unexpected challenges, they may plan for most of them, including prep the night before.

On the other hand, some people want to learn more about the show hosts. Well, we’ve got you covered.

Previously, we talked about Benoit Blin and Cherish Finden.
