A 30 year old Leeds woman is one of the contestants on the forthcoming series of The Great British Bake Off.
Nadiya is a full time mum who lives with her husband and children.
She comes from a Bangladeshi family who rarely enjoyed sweet treats at home. There was only one dessert on her Dad’s restaurant menu – ice cream.
Nadiya found her way into baking after being encouraged at school by her home economics teacher.
