A respiratory nurse from Norfolk with a “bright and cheery disposition” is among the 12 amateur bakers competing to win this year’s Great British Bake Off.

Kate is described as a 37-year-old farmer’s daughter from Norfolk who works as a nurse on an acute respiratory ward and is a mother of two.

Norfolk nurse hopes to be crowned best baker


She can “produce flawless sugar craft creations”, according to her biography on the Great British Bake Off website, which has just revealed the 2016 contestants for the hit baking show.

It went on to say that being a registered nurse was an “emotionally and physically challenging job that she finds incredibly rewarding”.

“She’s had a passion for baking since she was a child and loves using seasonal fruits and produce,” said the website.

“She thrives on nurturing others, be it her daughters and her husband Dave, her patients or her group of Brownies,” it added.

  • The Great British Bake Off starts on 24 August on BBC One at 8pm.
