Nadiya Jamir Hussain is a British chef, columnist and author, who won the sixth series of BBC's The Great British Bake Off.
Having been baking for 10 years, Nadiya’s family is originally from Bangladesh, where desserts are not a feature of mealtimes – she honed her skills as a baker after being encouraged by a school home economics teacher.
Since winning, Nadiya has become a columnist for The Times and has presented the Chronicles of Nadiya in 2016. Nadiya also co-presented The Big Family Cooking Showdown which aired on the BBC in 2017.
Her first children’s book ‘Nadiya’s Bake Me a Story’ was a bestseller in 2016. She wrote a novel ‘The Secret Lives of the Amir Sister’s in 2017 and ‘The Fall & Rise of the Amir Sisters’ will be out in April 2018.
Nadiya appears on Saturday 25th August
