Season three of the Great British Baking Show wrapped up last Friday for the United States, and Nadiya Hussain was named the winner. The season actually concluded earlier this year, and since that time Hussain has been busy cooking up her own projects. She released her first cookbook, Nadiya's Kitchen, baked a birthday cake for Queen Elizabeth's 90th birthday, and starred in another TV show called The Chronicles of Nadiya, which looks at her roots in Bangladesh.

Her latest project, however, might be the most exciting.

Hussain has joined the spin-off show of the Great British Baking Show called Junior Bake Off. She will join chef and food writer Allegra McEvedy as a judge for the show. There will be 40 contestants in the spin-off, ranging in age from 9 to 12. The show follows a similar structure as the original — the Technical Bake and Showstopper challenges are included.

Hussain told the The Telegraph, "I'm delighted to be joining Junior Bake Off as a judge. This time last year I was in the Bake Off tent and now I get to go back and help encourage the next generation to get their bake on."
