First published in

A Brighton mum has been named as one of this year’s Great British Bake Off contestants.

The fifth series will air on BBC1 next month.

Following the popularity of the last few years it is now one of the BBC’s flagship shows.

The corporation has revealed the first-names of this year’s contestants along with information about each.

They include Kate, who lives in Brighton with her five-year-old daughter.

The 41-year-old is said to have wanted to become an actress before changing direction and starting her own upholstery company.

She now organises street parties each year and likes to bake for her family. Last year she baked 15 Christmas cakes. She only rarely uses recipes or weighs ingredients.

The new series, presented by Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc, begins on Wednesday, August 6 on BBC1.
