Junior Bake Off (series 5)

The fifth series of Junior Bake Off began 4 November 2019, with 20 contestants competing to be crowned the series 5 winner. Comedian Harry Hill presents the show, with Liam Charles and Prue Leith as judges this year. The bakers are divided into two groups of 10 each, with five eliminated from one group the first week and five eliminated from the second group the second week. The remaining five bakers from each group are combined in the week-long finals, culminating in a "superfinal" episode that determines the winner.[1][2]
