Who is Bake Off 2018 contestant Jon? His background and career revealed as he continues his baking journey.
The talented baker has been a reliable presence in the Bake Off tent this year, and here are all the big facts:
Jon is 47-years-old, and lives in Newport in South Wales.
He works as a blood courier, but loves baking for his family in his spare time.
Jon lives with his wife Debbie and four kids in Wales.
“The [Bake Off] tent is far easier than my kitchen, at home I have the kids running around, after school clubs to pick up from and my wife trying to keep the kitchen clean and tidy,” he said.
“I bake as often as I can – several times a week, mainly in the day while my wife and children are at school as I get some peace that way!”

I've been asked about my shirt that I wore for #spiceweek. As my ginger cake was Christmas themed I decided to wear my ultra cool Christmas Hawaiian shirt. This is one of my favourites which was bought for me by my mother in law a few years ago. 🌴🎅 #gbbo #gbbo2018 #gbbocontestant #christmas #hawaiian #hawaiianshirt #gingercake #xmas #britishbakeoff
