The Great British Bake Off 2019 has welcomed a new bunch of contestants to the tent but who is Rosie Brandreth-Poynter?
Rosie Brandreth-Poynter from The Great British Bake Off is all set and ready to be judged by Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith in this year’s famous GBBO tent.
But what do we know about the passionate baker Rosie? Who is her husband and what is her day job? Here’s everything you need to know:
Name: Rosie Brandreth-Poynter
From: Oxfordshire but now living in Somerset
Job: Veterinary surgeon
The 2019 GBBO contestant is no stranger to a hectic life as she currently looks after her family including her husband Lewis, three dogs, a horse, a tortoise, two bearded dragons and of course, some ducks and chickens.
And when all that’s done, Rosie is also busy with her studies and high-pressure job of being a veterinary surgeon.
The animal lover revealed her love for baking began when she was just five after being given her first recipe book. Rosie prides herself on her inspired bakes where she likes to use as much fresh produce as she can.
Rosie and husband Lewis are childhood sweethearts who have been married for four years.
Also a big animal-lover, Lewis can’t help but be proud of his wife and her GBBO adventure as he often posts about it on Instagram.
