Junior Bake Off 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.

Harry Hill, Prue Leith and Liam Charles front the series.

Harry hosts with Prue joining Junior Bake Off as a judge in addition to the main show.

Prue's co-judge is Liam Charles, who competed on C4's first Bake Off in 2017.

"Almost all cooks and bakers start with brownies or pizza, finding it fun, creative and satisfying," Prue said. "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."

Liam added: "From competing to hosting and now judging, it’s insane. 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. Bring on the juniors!"
