Ruthie Henshall said today “I’m so thrilled to be judging for the first time in this year’s right royal West End Bake Off. Not only is it such a special event that brings the West End together, to celebrate the wedding of His Royal Highness Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on the same day, means it will be an extra special year. It’s also so wonderful to see that even after 8 shows a week the backstage teams and performers are able to find time to put effort towards raising money for Acting for Others.”
