New judges for Junior Bake Off

The 2021 series of Junior Bake Off will welcome Ravneet Gill as a new judge, taking over from Prue who could not film in 2020 due to schedule clashes.


Prue said: "I am so sorry not to be doing Junior this year, delays to filming meant that there was a clash with schedules.

"But I’m delighted to welcome Rav to the Bake Off family and hope she enjoys working on the show as much as I have."

Ravneet joins returning judge Liam Charles while Harry Hill is back as host.

Selected from thousands of applicants, 16 talented junior bakers enter the iconic white tent and compete in the most challenging and exciting contest to date.

Junior Bake Off will see 16 contestants taking part, starting the competition with two separate week-long heats facing 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.


You can watch past series of the Junior Bake Off online via All4.
