Among them is project manager Ruby and here's everything you need to know about her…
Who is Ruby from The Great British Bake Off 2018?
Ruby Bhogal, 29, is a project manager on the London Underground.
She grew up in a tight-knit Indian family as the youngest of four children.
As a little girl, baking meant her mother's jalebis to her, which are a type of Indian sweet.
Now, as a busy Londoner, she loves inviting her friends around to try her baked goods, from cakes and pastries to spicy minced lamb pastry rolls.
She explains her baking style as boozy and relaxed – and admits trying to sneak some alcoholic beverage into everything she makes.
Why did Ruby apply for the show?
Ruby said she joined the Bake Off tent for her "love of baking, the love of the show" and for herself.
She says because she is so new to baking, her friends are going to be shocked to see her work on the show.
She confessed: "I don't really post about my baking on social media, so I am sure my friends are going to be surprised.
"I think it may blow their minds as they know me for going out and going to the gym as opposed to being in the kitchen."
When does The Great British Bake Off start on Channel 4?
