Nadiya from Great British Bake Off gets her own BBC series

She's a long way from the tent now


Nadiya Hussain has come a long way already – from home cook to winner of Great British Bake Off to cooking the Queen’s 90th birthday cake– but now she’s going to go even further.


The Chronicles of Nadiya (geddit?) will see Nadiya travel from her home in Luton to her family village in Bangladesh. Over the two-part series on BBC1, she’ll be sharing some of her family favourites, as well as exploring how Bangladesh and its food have changed.


It may feel like the title came before the programme, but it sounds fun, so we’ll allow it.  Here’s hoping she makes cupcakes at some point.
