Nadiya Hussain: how the Great British Bake Off winner's life has changed

Life has been transformed for Nadiya Hussain since she scooped the Great British Bake Off crown last month. Already a heroine for many across the nation before her win, the British-Bangladeshi mum-of-three rose to fame overnight. After her emotional win, which prompted tears from GBBO judge and baking queen Mary Berry, Nadiya went on to appear on HELLO! magazine's front cover. She has also been called "a star" by the show's presenter Sue Perkins and rubbed shoulders with Australian actress Nicole Kidman.

Nadiya has had a jam-packed schedule since the show finished, which is set to continue. She'll be at the Cake and Bake Show in Manchester in November, and will be joining other chefs and bakers in Edinburgh."My feet haven't touched the ground to be honest. It's been the best time of my life," said the 30-year-old, who has reportedly just sold her house in Leeds. She is said to be moving to Milton Keynes to be nearer her family and London, where she hopes TV and book opportunities will materialise.
