School Reporters from The Compton School in Barnet interviewed star baker John Whaite about life after winning last year's Great British Bake Off.

James, Amir and Emma discussed the importance of teaching cooking to young people and quizzed John about his Food Technology lessons at school.

Whaite was at the BBC to help out at a Charity Pop-Up Cake Shop.
