Nadiya Hussain has been crowned the sixth winner of BBC’s The Great British Bake Off.
Nadiya Hussain, 30, is a full-time mum, she wowed judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood with her technical challenge and showstopper.
Nadiya was up against Ian Cumming and Tamal Ray in a close final.
When winner, she said: “I went into the tent as the smallest baker at 4′ 11″ but I walked out feeling a giant – almost as tall as my fellow baker, 6 footer Mat Riley!”
Mary said she was “really proud” of Nadiya: “Over the weeks she has grown in confidence. She came into the tent for the final and was nervous but she had the look that said she can do it.
“The finished result had to wow us and Nadiya’s showstopper was stunning. Sheer perfection, and I have enjoyed every minute.”
Paul added: “All three bakers pushed the boat out for the final, but it’s all about keeping calm and being consistent throughout.
“Nadiya has brought something special to the Bake Off. Her ideas, flair, her emotions and her passion were all in her bakes: she just nailed the whole final. That was the best-tasting final we have ever had.”
