The Junior Bake Off has arrived back on our screens recently, bringing us some truly heartwarming TV.
Every episode of the feel-good series, hosted by Liam Charles, Ravneet Gill and Harry Hill, has been like a virtual hug, introducing us to some inspiring young bakers.
We’ve had tears and triumphs so far, with plenty more to come as the series continues.
The show introduced us to 16 contestants at the start, with one hoping to be crowned champion. So far, they’ve put their skills to the test by making cakes, biscuits, bread, desserts, and pastry.
We’ve also seen all the bakers band together to help finish a last-minute creation, and comfort an eliminated contestant in touching scenes.
But how can young fans get involved in future series, and how old do they have to be? Here’s everything you need to know.
