Nadiya will be at the Show on Friday 1 December and Sunday 3 December. See her around the Show in live interviews and in the Big Kitchen.


Nadiya’s captivating smile, interesting expressions and of course her delicious bakes and desserts made her the hot favourite for 2015's Great British Bake Off.

She may well have been the smallest baker in the GBBO tent in 2015 but what Nadiya lacked in height, she made up for with her amazing creations, her enthusiasm, wit and warmth. The nation has certainly taken Nadiya to their hearts and she even made the wonderful Mary Berry cry with emotion at her win.

2016 is already shaping up to be a very exciting year for Nadiya. Her first cookbook, Nadiya’s Kitchen has just been published, with her children’s book, Bake Me A Story slated for publication in September 2016. Added to her books, Nadiya is a columnist for The Times and Essentials.

Nadiya is also writing a series of contemporary women’s fiction novels with the first to be released in 2017.

On the TV front, Nadiya has already appeared on numerous shows and is now a regular reporter for The One Show on BBC 1 and pannelist on Loose Women. Nadiya’s own series, The Chronicles of Nadiya will be shown on BBC later this year. And there’s more exciting things to come!

Nadiya was initially encouraged to bake by her school home economics teacher. She’s since honed her skills as a baker and produces fabulous bakes and desserts every day. However, it’s not just bakes that make her family and friend’s mouth water, it’s her amazing cooking in general!


Nadiya lives with her husband, Abdal and is mum to three gorgeous children.
