Nadiya Hussain, the winner of series six of The Great British Bake Off, has just inked a television development deal with the BBC. "Since winning The Great British Bake Off I've been lucky to have had some amazing opportunities with the BBC," Hussain said in a statement.
After winning last year's Bake Off competition, Hussain has been a regular contributor to BBC talk show The One Show and also starred in her own mini-docu-series The Chronicles of Nadiya, in which she traveled to Bangladesh, where her parents grew up, to connect with family and her culinary heritage.
"I believe that making [the BBC] my home gives me the scope to work across such a unique range of diverse and interesting projects. I'm delighted to announce that I will continue making films for The One Show, as well as developing other exciting programme ideas. I never thought this would happen, but it is and I have to admit, I'm going to embrace it," Hussain says.
