Rules of Entry

  1. Junior Bake Off is a nationwide talent search for junior amateur bakers. All applicants must be aged 9 years (or over) on 1st June 2021, but less than 16 years on 30th September 2021.
  2. All applicants must be resident in the UK (including Isle of Man and Channel Islands).
  3. Applicants must be able to commit to all the filming days required for the Programme, which we anticipate will be filmed over the period from June to September 2021 for up to 14-20 days of filming. For successful applicants, we  will confirm more precise filming dates as well as more detailed arrangements for filming nearer the time. Please note: (a) in order to minimise risks in relation to Covid-19, certain health and safety protocols, including for example testing, health checks and periods of isolation, may need to be put in place; and (b)  we try to avoid taking children out of school by scheduling filming for weekends and school holidays, but we cannot guarantee this is always possible. If your child was required to miss any school days in order to take part we would liaise with the school and local authority to make sure we have the correct license in place to do this.)

  5. Love Productions can only accept application forms either online via or by post to Junior Bake Off Take Part Applications, 15 Macklin Street, London WC2B 5NG.
