Nearly 15 million people tuned in to see Nadiya win 2015's Great British Bake Off, and she has gone on to capture the heart of the nation. A columnist for The Times and Essentials magazine, Nadiya is also a regular reporter for The One Show, a guest panellist on Loose Women, and presented BBC1's The Chronicles of Nadiya which aired to fantastic reviews in 2016. She famously baked the Queen's 90th birthday cake.
