Could you become Blue Peter's junior TV chef?

Congratulations to Jake, from Port Talbot, who has been named as Blue Peter's new junior TV chef. Meet Jake.

He will now be cooking up a storm on the show during 2007.

Find out more about Jake and the other finalists, Zeeshan and Jack.


What was on offer?

Blue Peter and BBC New Talent were looking for a new junior TV chef to appear on the show during 2007. After a huge response from over 12,000 children, auditions were run around the country where 12 hopefuls were then invited to a residential boot camp.

Good Food magazine's Deputy food Editor, Jane Hornby, devised a host of recipes, including American pancakes and an omelette, that the children had to cook in front of the three judges.

From there, the final three were chosen and were given the task of cooking for celebrity chef James Martin and 'Celebrity Masterchef' winner Hardeep Kohli.

The winner, Jake from Port Talbot, will now appear on Blue Peter during 2007 as their new junior chef.
