  2. Who is Steph Blackwell?

    Steph lives in Chester with her mother, where she works as a shop assistant.

    Since she was young, Steph has loved having fun in the kitchen, and it was her grandfather who inspired her love for bread.

    However, it was only three years ago that she started taking baking seriously as a potential career.

    She is also very passionate about fitness and wellness, and tries to make healthy bakes by using fruit and vegetables and reducing sugars and fats.

    “It wasn’t really joined up thinking, I didn’t think that I would get in, I wanted to give it a go," she said.

    "It’s just beyond anything that I can imagine, because I didn’t really dream that I would get in, it has been the most incredible surreal experience.”
