It’s a matter of dough or dare for young Maddie, 12, who is throwing her baker’s hat into the ring for the new Channel 4 series of Junior Bake Off, which starts next Monday.

The keen Arsenal fan from north London has been baking since she was just two-years-old and credits her mum, grandmother and aunt for her flour power.

 Inspired by her Jewish and French heritage, Maddie loves to make a weekly challah and is known for her signature French Madeleines.

Experimental Maddie is also said to like impressing with flavours and decoration and recently treated her dad to a red velvet illusion cake for his birthday, as well as 50 James Bond-themed cupcakes for family friends.

Maddie will no doubt whip up a feast for judges Prue Leith and Great British Bake Off contestant Liam Charles, as well as host and comedian Harry Hill.

  • Junior Bake Off will air weekdays on Channel 4 from November 4.
