GET ready to have your hearts melted as Junior Bake Off kick's off on Channel 4.
The sweet Bake Off spin off show sees 16 kids go head-to-head – but only one can be crowned winner.
What does the winner of Junior Bake Off get?
Hosted by comedian Harry Hill, the new season will see 16 young bakers put their culinary skills to the test as they try to impress the judges over the course of two heats.
Each episode sees the contestants take on the technical and showstopper challenges.
Like the main Great British Bake Off, there isn’t a big cash prize for winning the show.
The winner takes home the special glass cake stand trophy and the honour of being the best on the series.
As well as no cash prize up for grabs, the contestants also don’t get paid.
For the main show, the contestants have to pay for their own ingredients during the audition process – but they do get an "allowance" if they make it to the tent itself.
