Great British Bake Off winner crowned

Nadiya is a British Bangladeshi

Nadiya Hussain has risen to the occasion to be crowned the winner of this year’s Great British Bake Off.

Nadiya, 30, from Leeds, baked a “big fat British wedding cake” adorned with jewels from her own wedding day as the showstopper in Wednesday’s final.

Ian Cumming faltered when he forgot to add sugar to the dough of his spiced buns for the signature bake.

And Tamal Ray struggled when the creme patissiere for his toffee and marmalade iced buns failed to set in time.

Nadiya has become the sixth winner in the show’s history.
