The Great British Bake Off is getting a new spin-off this year
Calling all Bake Off fans.
The Great British Bake Off has been officially renewed for two more years - and a new spin-off has been announcing.
Channel 4 announced earlier this week that they are bringing Junior Bake Off to the channel.
Three new series will be made by production company Love Productions, with the first 15-part series expected to air later this year.
Channel 4 and Love Productions also confirmed a new two series agreement for The Great British Bake Off – extending the successful creative partnership until 2021.
Ian Katz, Channel 4 Director of Programmes said:
“Over the last two years The Great British Bake Off has become one of the best loved programmes on Channel 4, embodying the warmth, mischief and inclusivity for which the channel is known.
"We’re delighted to be continuing our fantastically collaborative partnership with Love Productions and especially to be discovering a new generation of British baking talent with Junior Bake Off.”
Richard McKerrow, Chief Executive Love Productions added:
“We are delighted to have extended Bake Off’s stay on Channel 4 after two great years together.
"We have been hugely encouraged by the audience response and feedback the show has received during its time on Channel 4 and are thrilled to be bringing Junior Bake Off to the Channel.
"It seems particularly appropriate to be announcing news of the extension on Channel 4 as we enjoy Bake Off’s tenth anniversary on British television.”
The tenth series of Bake Off will be broadcast on Channel 4 later this year, with a further two series now confirmed to follow.
