Ruby Bhogal is one of the 12 contestants hoping to become this year's amateur baking champion.
The talented baker is taking park in The Great British Bake Off, and here are all the important facts about her:
Ruby is 29 and hails from London.
She is youngest of four in an Indian family, and has fond memories of her mum Kelly, making Jalebi’s, an Indian sweet.
Ruby describes herself as the ‘mum’ at university, cooking for seven male housemates.
She also says that her friends at home will be “shocked” to see her in Bake Off, describing herself as “an undercover baker”.
“Because I am so new to baking there are going to be so many people that will be shocked. I don’t really post about my baking on social media, so I am sure my friends are going to be surprised,” she says.
“I think it may blow their minds as they know me for going out and going to the gym as opposed to being in the kitchen. I am a bit of an undercover baker! I cannot wait!”
Ruby works as a project manager in London.

Post-gym bake. Some may say it’s counter productive. Some may say it defeats the objective. I just say it’s balance 💁🏻♀️ (And I’m hungry) #gains #favouriteseatinanyhouse . . . . #greatbritishbakeoff #greatbritishbakingshow #gbbo #gbbo2018 #bakeoff #britishbakeoff #series9 #final9 #bakingblog #foodieblog #londonbaker #shegyms #gymbunny
