“But, when I did my first travelogue in Bangladesh, which was a total stab in the dark, I realised, ‘I can actually do this, I’m not scared of the camera.'”

Nadiya confessed it’s been a learning process for her over the last decade, however, it looks as though the baker has no plans of slowing down.

It’s nearly time to see who will join Nadiya in a long list of Bake Off winners as the new series kicks off on September 26.

With a fresh batch of bakers returning to the tent, they’ll be joined by This Morning’s Alison Hammond after Matt Lucas decided to step down from the show.

Alison will present the show alongside Noel Fielding who has been part of the Bake Off family since 2017.

Speaking about joining the show, Alison said: “Finally I can talk about it! I’m absolutely thrilled to be joining the Great British Bake Off and can’t wait to meet this year’s bakers.

“It’s a huge honour to be back in the tent and I can’t wait to get started.”

The Great British Bake Off airs on Tuesday on Channel 4 at 8pm.
