News Image
Channel 4 has agreed a new deal for two more series of hit show 'The Great British Bake Off' and brand new spin-off 'Junior Bake Off'.

The deal, formed with Love Productions, will see three series of Junior Bake Off produced, with the first set to air on Channel 4 later this year.

The Great British Bake Off is also heading back to our TV screens later this year for series 10, with further series to follow in 2020 and 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."
