Fans of last year’s Bake Off star Liam Charles will be pleased to dis­cover he’s landed his own bak­ing show. Liam’s en­thu­si­asm is in­fec­tious and now he’s on a mis­sion to get the whole na­tion bak­ing as he shares some of his favourite recipes, in­spired by his friends and fam­ily.

When the ir­re­press­ibly en­thu­si­as­tic Liam Charles ap­peared on last year’s Bake Off, he im­pressed the C4 bosses so much that he’s now been given his own se­ries! Liam

Bakes is the 21-yearold’s chance to present his recipes, which he bakes with mates.

‘It’s wicked – this is me in my ev­ery­day en­vi­ron­ment, bak­ing with my friends and fam­ily. We’re mak­ing big dishes that ev­ery­one can get in­volved with, and I want to show that any­one can do it,’ says Liam. ‘My mum’s not a mas­sive fan of the cam­era, but I told her she had to be on the show, so we made some savoury scones to­gether. She likes to think she knows best in the kitchen! My nan makes a cameo, too.’

Ice-cream sarnie

Each episode fea­tures four dis­tinc­tive recipes and is shot out and about in east Lon­don, where Liam grew up. ‘I feel so proud of my com­mu­nity and they have al­ways been re­ally sup­port­ive – it was great to have them on cam­era,’ he says.

Liam can’t wait to share one of the recipes in par­tic­u­lar: his de­li­cious ice­cream sand­wich!

‘It’s so cool – it’s ice cream set be­tween two bis­cuits, but dif­fer­ent top­pings on both sides. It in­volves putting bis­cuits and Smar­ties in a blender!’
