Junior Bake Off typically sees 20 contestants taking part, starting the competition with two separate week-long heats. Across five episodes, each heat will feature 10 bakers who will face Technical Bakes and Showstopper challenges.

Only the best will get through to the third and final week, having put their cake, biscuit, bread and pastry-making skills to the test.

The current series sees Ravneet Gill and Liam Charles return as regular judges while Harry Hill is back as host. Ravneet previously took over the judging from Prue Leith in 2021 due to schedule clashes.

You can watch the series weekday afternoons on Channel 4 and online via Channel4.com.
