Who is Bake Off 2020’s Linda?

61-year-old Linda hails from East Sussex

The Retirement Living Team Leader first discovered her passion for baking during her childhood visits to her aunt’s dairy farm.

She used to help to milk the cows, then carry a bucket of milk into the kitchen, where her aunt taught her to bake cakes.

Her strengths are in the classics and in home-comfort cooking, like her signature sausage rolls.

What has Linda said about Bake Off?

Speaking about being on Bake Off, Linda said that she was “in awe” of the production team for managing to pull off the 2020 series, because of the pandemic.

“To be in the tent the first morning was a real magical moment for me,” she told Channel 4. “I just kept pinching myself and tried hard to stop grinning at everyone!”

“I was so excited and I am still in a little shock, I just wanted to do my best and show people how much I loved to bake.

“I find it’s a real therapy and lovely when it’s so appreciated. I’ll never lose that magical feeling I had when I first walked into the tent and that will stay with me as one of my moments. It’s never too late to chase your dreams.”
