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, 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 rave reviews in 2016. Nadiya's own eight-part BBC2 series, Nadiya's British Food Adventure, will start in July, while later in the year she will be co-hosting the new BBC2 show The Big Family Cooking Showdown. Born in Luton to British Bangladeshi parents, she now lives in Milton Keynes with her husband, Abdal, and her three children. Her first cookbook, Nadiya's Kitchen, was published in 2016. She has also authored a children's cookbook and a novel, and famously baked the Queen's 90th birthday cake.
