One of the most-loved cult reality shows is back on the box, with The Great Pottery Throw Down returning to our screens – and not a moment too soon.
The Channel 4 series follows amateur potters as they attempt to impress the judges with an array of wonderful creations.
Whether it be behind the pottery wheel, or perfecting intricate crafts before they face the uncertainty of the kiln, the potters always experience plenty of jeopardy on the way to creating something special.
There are 12 potters taking part in the Channel 4 show, which begins its 10-week run on January 2.
But what time is it on, who is hosting and how does the series work?
Who is hosting the series?
This year, the hosting duties will be split between comedian Ellie Taylor and Derry Girls star Siobhán McSweeney.
Previous hosts of the programme have included Sarah Cox and Melanie Sykes.
How does the Great Pottery Throw Down work?
The series follows a similar format to The Great British Sewing Bee, and sees the contestants faced with challenges designed to test their skill sets.
Each of the tasks are set by judges Keith Brymer Jones and Rich Miller. The first episodes will see the potters asked to make a children’s crockery set and ceramic milk bottles.
After seeing their creations, the judges then decide who goes home and who gets to progress to the next stage of the competition.
Fans of the series will remember that Jodie Neale named the winner of The Great Pottery Throw Down 2021 after impressing the judges with their delicate work with clay.
The previous final saw her tasked with creating a 1920s Art Deco-inspired party set for their main challenge.
What time does The Great Pottery Throw Down air?
The new series of the programme airs on Channel 4 at 7.45pm on January 2. New episodes will air every week in the same time slot.
