Tell us about your time on Great British Bake Off? Any highlights?

Being on the show itself was a highlight. There are two things that have stuck with me: I was thrilled when Mary said I reminded her of her when she was younger and Paul Hollywood loved my pretty decorated biscuits and said they could be served at The Dorchester Hotel.

What are Paul and Mary like to work with?

Paul is very fair but understandably has very high standards. He pushed us to get even better at our baking and praised us when we achieved.

Mary was and, continues to be, hugely supportive to me. She is such a lovely person and it was wonderful to have the opportunity to work with her.

Are you still in touch with Paul & Mary and the other contestants?

Yes, everyone's really busy so we don't have a chance to meet regularly. We did all meet at the BBC Good Food Show in November which was fanastic!

What did you learn from being in the GBBO, both baking specific and life lessons?
Any top baking tips?
What's your favourite thing to bake?

I can't possibly choose just one thing! Something chocolatey. Cakes and biscuits, meringues and eclairs, millionaires shortbread. I really love baking things that I know will put a smile on someone's face – My absolute favourite thing must be making birthday cake for one of my children – I have three children so three birthday cakes every year!

Why are you supporting Dreams Come True?

Being in the final of the GBBO, having the chance to write cookery books and make baking my career is a dream come true for me. I know how important dreams are to my children and I feel very privileged to be able to be part of making other very special children's dreams come true.
