BBC seeks young bakers for TV show

CBBC is looking for junior home bakers from across the country to take part in a new series called Junior Bake Off.

The series will promote and celebrate British home baking and stems from successful BBC2 show, The Great British Bake Off, which was won by Edd Kimber (pictured).

The new programme will give bakers aged 9-12 years old the chance to be crowned as the first ever junior bake off champion.

Parents and guardians can get an application form here.

Alternatively email or call 0207 0674876

You can also follow the show on Twitter – @juniorbakeoff
