Robbie, 15, aims to win TV’s Junior Bake Off
Robbie in the Junior Bake Off tent with Harry Hill
A LOCAL teenager is providing the perfect recipe for cheering us all up during the winter lockdown - he’s appearing in Channel 4’s Junior Bake Off.
Fifteen-year-old Robbie was on our screens in the first heat of the popular contest in the week beginning January 11, competing against seven other youngsters in daily challenges to create cakes, biscuits, bread, desserts and pastry.
He was one of four contestants who made it through to the finals week, starting on January 25. The show is presented by comedian Harry Hill and the judges are Liam Charles and Ravneet Gill.
Robbie, who is known as ‘smiler’ in school because of his beaming grin and happy-go-lucky nature, won the hearts of viewers by his obvious enjoyment of the experience.
Baking is just one of his hobbies; Robbie is goalie for his local football team, plays cricket, is involved in a drama group and loves making short films. He’s also the youngest person on the committee for his village fete where he helps organise the annual raffle.
Junior Bake Off is on weekdays at 5pm and can also be found on All4.
