Last week I was reunited with the fabulous Nancy Birtwhistle, Bake Off Champion of 2014. We were both speaking about baking at an event and it was so great to see how far Nancy’s come since the tent last summer. We are filming the new series at the moment and it’s so funny to look around the tent and wonder who is going to be this year’s ‘Nancy’! I can’t say much about the show as I don’t want to spoil the special magic of the show by giving away any tips. I can however say this; it’s going to be a good year, in fact it’s going to be better than ever. We have an interesting group this year and the bakes are a mixture of easy and REALLY difficult. Lots of people have been asking me when Bake Off will be back on. I am afraid I can’t answer that as the BBC only release dates a few weeks before the show starts. However, the show normally starts in August, so keep an eye on my Facebook page and Twitter and as soon as I know I will let you guys know.
Apart from Bake Off I have been travelling around a bit over the last couple of weeks. I visited the Highlands for the first time and was really knocked out by how stunning it is up there. I also managed a trip to the seaside for an ice cream with my son as the sun came out this weekend.
