The talented baker is taking part in the 2018 series of The Great British Bake Off, but what does she do outside the famous tent?

Here are all the facts you need:

  1. Who is Manon LaGreve and what is her age?

    Manon is 26, and lives in London but is originally from France.

    She said that when she came to England, “Bake Off was one of the first shows we watched together on TV.”
