As we gear up for the next series of the well-loved show, we’re shocked to hear there will be a new judge alongside Patrick Grant. Here’s what you need to know!
The fourth series welcomes Esme Young, co-founder of fashion label, Swanky Modes with fellow judge Patrick Grant and host, Claudia Winkleman.
Young will co-judge the 10 contestants throughout the eight-week series, as they take on three different sewing challenges each episode.
As a Central Saint Martins graduate and tutor, as well as a costume designer on several big name films, including Trainspotting, and the forthcoming Bridget Jones’ Baby, Esme has a wealth of expertise.
With all this excitement, we can’t wait for the new series to start, although we may have to wait a little while longer yet! With filming for series four set to start several months later than usual, it’s looking to be an early summer airing.
