Nadiya Hussain revealed as Junior Bake Off judge

The Great British Bake Off 2015 winner is set to star in the CBBC series


Ruling queen of the Bake Off, Nadiya Hussain, is all set to pass on her skills to the next generation of cake-makers.


The 2015 winner has just been announced as a judge on CBBC’s Junior Bake Off – and we think she’ll do a fab job.

Hussain will be working alongside chef and food writer Allegra McEvedy, judging the efforts of 40 nine to 12-year-olds in the competition presented by Sam Nixon and Mark Rhodes.

The little ‘uns will each complete two bakes over ten heats, including a technical and showstopper challenge.

It’s the icing on the cake (sorry) for a great year for Hussain since she was named Bake Off winner last October. She’s bagged her own cookbook, a Times column, a TV travel series and even made a cake for the Queen’s 90th birthday.


She said of the new show: “This time last year I was in the Bake Off tent and now I get to go back and help encourage the next generation to get their bake on.”
