Reality TV stars fade faster than they appear but the superstar baker seems to have created something a little longer lasting
Two years after claiming victory on one of the nation’s favourite shows (which has just broadcast its 2017 finale), a positive spotlight still shines on the 2015 Great British Bake Off winner.
