The Hairy Bikers’ Chocolate Challenge
Channel 5, Air date: February 2020
Si & Dave give seven creative chocolate fans the chance of a lifetime in a brand new series that will have you drooling...
Willy Wonka, at your heart out! We can't wait to get stuck into the scrumptious new series. The TV chef duo are giving a cast of passionate chocoholics the chance of a lifetime in The Hairy Bikers’ Chocolate Challenge on Channel Five.
During the series, seven contestants will be let loose inside Yorkshire’s Nestlé factories, where they will go head-to-head as they battle to create, brand and name their very own confectionery.
The final winner will get a money-can’t-buy prize: the chance to design their own take on one of the world’s best-selling chocolate bars, to be rolled out nationwide.
'Chocolate! Who doesn’t love chocolate?' asks Dave. 'But also this is so much more than a cookery competition. The contestants on it aren’t professional chocolatiers, they’re people who like baking and cooking with chocolate and they they come from all walks of life.
'We’ve got someone who’s a train steward, another who works for an advertising company, there’s a schoolteacher and even someone who’s a fitness instructor which you might not think goes hand in hand with a love of chocolate!’
The Hairy Bikers’ Chocolate Challenge is on Channel 5 on Wednesday 12th Feb at 9pm.
