The Great British Bake Off has become one of the most popular shows to ever hit television screens in the UK with celebrities and members of the public alike gripped by Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood walking around a tent judging people’s baking efforts.
Hosted by the loveable Mel and Sue, Bake Off gets some of the best bakers in the country showcasing their talents not only against the clock but under the watchful gaze of two of the biggest names in the British baking industry and, of course, the nation.
It has even captured the imagination of the Prime Minister David Cameron who recently revealed in an interview that he is backing Nadiya to win this week’s final, an episode that he will be racing home from the ongoing Conservative conference in Manchester to watch.
The final of this year’s competition airs on Wednesday night (7th October), and Cameron has backed Nadiya Jamir Hussain to remain “cool under pressure” as he stated in an interview with the Independent newspaper, to go on and win the contest.
Nadiya has captured the love of the public, particularly on social media, through her amazing facial expressions throughout the show and her stunning creations.
The show is currently in its sixth series, and it has an army of followers with the show frequently topping the ratings charts on trending across the UK – and worldwide on some occasions – on Twitter as members of the public discuss what’s being made and their favourite bakers, (along with plenty of innuendo comments from Mary Berry, bless her).
Nadiya goes up against Tamal, an anaesthetist, and Ian, a travel photographer in the series finale.
