As host Sara revealed in the series eight launch episode, The Great British Sewing Bee is now being filmed at Sunny Bank Mills, a historic wool mill in Leeds. Founded in 1829 and located on the outskirts of the Yorkshire city, it was once one of the world's most important fine worsted mills.

While the manufacture of worsted cloth ceased at the mill in 2008, it is now home to many creative businesses and artist's studios, shops, a café and bar - and, of course, used as a filming location for the BBC programme.

Discussing the decision to film the new series there, judge Patrick Grant said: "Leeds is at the heart of the wool and textile industry so it feels appropriate to film in a great big spinning mill."

Before moving up north, the series was filmed in a variety of locations in London. The Chain Store on Trinity Buoy, which is located just off the River Thames next to the O2 arena, was used for the seventh series as well as the recent Christmas and New Year's specials, while a studio in Bermondsey was used for season six.

Before that, the show was shot at a location on Tanner Street near London Bridge, which viewers may recognise as the filming home for the long-running investing programme Dragons' Den.

The Great British Sewing Bee continues on Wednesday nights at 9pm on BBC One.
