The book was extremely well-received and helped to established Ravneet's credentials as a star of the future.

In addition to her work as a Pastry Chef, Ravneet is the founder and director of Countertalk – a community organisation that promotes and fosters positive workplaces environments in the catering industry.

Through her work with Countertalk, the star reportedly regularly hosted industry events and presentations – giving her a chance to experience the spotlight ahead of her TV career.

When did Ravneet Gill replace Prue Leith on Junior Bake Off?

When Junior Bake Off first premiered back in 2011, it was initially judged by the then-judges on the adult version of the show, Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood.

However, in 2013 Berry departed the series and was replaced by Allegra McEvedy who would go on to appear in two series of the show.

In 2019, McEvedy was replaced by Prue Leith after the spin-off show was acquired by Channel 4.

However, Prue Leith would only appear as a judge for a single series before being replaced with Ravneet Gill.

At the time, it was reported that Leith was concerned about filming for the show in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

Taking to Twitter, Prue wrote: “I am so sorry not to be doing Junior this year, delays to filming (mean) that there was a clash with schedules.

''But I’m delighted to welcome Rav to the Bake Off family and hope she enjoys working on the show as much as I have.”

Ravneet is now set to appear once again, as the 2023 series of the show begins on Monday, January 16.

She will appear alongside fellow judge and past contestant Liam Charles.

As well as Liam and Ravneet, the show also stars comedian Harry Hill, who has been acting as the host of the Junior Bake Off since 2019.

Aside for Junior Bake off, Ravneet has also appeared on Saturday Kitchen, James Martin’s Saturday morning, This Morning, Saturday Mash up and Sunday Brunch.

Is Ravneet Gill married?

Ravneet Gill has never publicly disclosed her relationship status – and doesn't seem keen to do so.

Instead, Ravneet's Instagram bio suggests she spends her time baking, cooking and eating – but mostly with her cats and her Nan.

In an interview with Whistles, she shared some of the difficulties she had faced as a single woman in the industry.
