What has Liam said about Prue Leith?

Liam said it is a bit weird working on Junior Bake Off along with Prue Leith.

Especially as she’d savaged some of his recipes when he competed on the show.

While speaking to Delicious Magazine, he explained: “In 2017 she was telling me how rubbish my stuff was – sorry, giving me critique – on Bake Off.

“Then, suddenly, there I was next to her, critiquing someone else’s work. I feel very lucky as the Bake Off team obviously have massive faith in me and I’m always trying to improve.”

However, while chatting to Channel 4, he said ultimately it was fantastic to work alongside her.

Liam said: “Working with Prue and Harry [Hill] was great and just seeing how the junior bakers came up with ideas. They were inspiring me! And I learned from Harry and Prue and the Bakers themselves.”
