THE Great British Sewing Bee is returning for its eighth season of the competition.

With seven winners of the show to date – find out here what prize they get.

What does the winner of The Great British Sewing Bee get?

Just like The Great British Bake Off, there is no grand cash prize for the winner of The Great British Sewing Bee.

Instead, the winner will get bragging rights and a trophy.

In order to win the competition, contestants must make it through 10 weeks of increasingly difficult sewing challenges.

Judges Patrick Grant and Esme Young will decide the top sewer of the week and which of the contestants will be sent home.
