The new celebrity chef and winner of the sixth series of BBC's The Great British Bake Off in 2015, Nadiya Hussain, will be making her first appearance in the county at Newport show on 9th July 2016.
Nadiya will give demonstrations and talk about her rise to baking fame. She is expected to be a popular draw with show-goers, many whom will have seen her emotional victory on the BBC1 programme in October 2015.
The 107th Newport Show, one of Shropshire's largest one-day events attracted a record 13,000 visitors last year.
Nadiya, who is now a weekly columnist for The Times magazine and is writing her first cook book, will headline in the show's food-related attractions, which will also feature a host of gourmet local food, wine and beer suppliers.
Nadiya said: “I’m very excited to be coming to Newport Show and Shropshire for the first time. I’ll be demonstrating recipes from my book that will be published in June and I’m looking forward to meeting Bake Off fans.”
Show President Martin Hall said: “We are over the moon to have enticed Nadiya to Shropshire for the first time and to the Newport Show.
“Her victory in the Bake Off and her amazing creative flair and open personality captured the hearts of the 15 million viewers and we are very much looking forward to her visit to the show.”
