Breaking news: it's the last day to apply for The Great British Bake Off 2014. Fancy giving it a go? Well, all you need to do is click here and fill in the form. Plus, we grabbed last year's runner-up, Ruby Tandoh, for a bit of insider advice. Here's what she told us this morning: 

'Don't be put off applying for Bake Off just because you're not an expert baker yet. It's an incredible experience, and one which you mustn't exempt yourself from just because of a couple of collapsed cakes in the past. Just bake the kind of things you're really interested in and let that passion come across.'

In other Bake Off news, it was announced today that Ruby has landed herself a book deal. Her debut cookbook, Crumb, is due out in September. Massive congrats, Rubster!
