What happened to Prue on Junior Bake Off?

  • She reportedly could not participate due to schedule clashes

Prue took to Twitter to tell her followers that she won’t be doing Junior Bake Off this year, as delays to filming meant there was a clash with schedules.

However, other reports say her absence is due to coronavirus fears.

Prue pulled out of Junior Bake Off 2021 halfway through filming because contestants were not isolating safely, according to reports.

The 80-year-old, who is in the age group considered to be more vulnerable to coronavirus, was planning to judge the series as usual.

However, the cast and crew had underestimated how difficult it would be to keep all of the contestants in self-isolation, as reported by The Mirror.

Prue is reportedly returning to judge the main Great British Bake Off series later in the year.
