Twenty of Britain’s best junior bakers are about to step into the Tent to impress judges Prue Leith and Liam Charles – and to dodge Harry Hill’s ‘helpful’ suggestions.
Judge Prue Leith, who has campaigned for a long time on the importance of teaching children about food said: “Almost all cooks and bakers start with brownies or pizza, finding it fun, creative and satisfying. So the more we can do to widen the nation’s interest in good food the better. I’m really thrilled to be asked to judge Junior Bake Off.”
Bake Off alumni Liam Charles is stepping up to the plate to judge this new series of Junior Bake Off. He said: “It’s going to be great to see what the junior bakers come up with because this is around the age I started. I’m well chuffed to be sharing the experience with Prue and Harry, it’s gonna be wicked, ROLL ON THE JUNIORS!!”
Comedian and author Harry Hill will be returning to the tent after his ‘memorable’ appearance on The Great Stand Up To Cancer Bake Off. His 3D biscuit scene ‘The Day I Went On Holiday With Camilla Parker Bowles’ had the judges in stitches. He said: “I’m very excited to be going back in the tent and breathing the cake fumes – I know a certain Duchess will be looking on, brimming with pride.”
Junior Bake Off returns Monday 4th November at 5pm on Channel 4.
