Martha Collison

Appearing as a contestant on The Great British Bake Off in 2014 was the start of Martha's career.

As the youngest ever contestant to date, aged just 17, she managed to make it all the way to the quarter-finals whilst studying for her AS levels.

She has since continued to grow in the food industry, writing a weekly column for Waitrose Weekend, demonstrating at festivals and baking at high profile events - such as 'A recipe for Life' with the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, and was the offical afternoon tea consultant at Wimbledon.

She has appeared in many in successful videos, made for Cadbury and Waitrose TV, amassing over 2 million views.

Martha has also appeared on Blue Peter, The One Show, Saturday Kitchen, Comic Relief and Bake Off: An Extra Slice. Martha has recently partnered with Bramber Bakehouse, a charity dedicated to restoring women who have experienced sexual exploitation.

Her first recipe book, TWIST, published by HarperCollins, was released in 2016 and remained in the Sunday Times bestseller list for 3 weeks. Her second book, Crave, was published by HarperCollins on the 27th July 2017 and is in the top 10 Celebrity Books of 2017.
