Who is Maggie on the Great British Bake Off 2021? 

Maggie is one of the older contestants in Bake Off’s new series, at the age of 70.

The GBBO contestant is a retired nurse and midwife, and lives in a beautiful country home in Dorset.

Growing up Maggie was surrounded by a family that loved to cook, so its no surprise that she inherited this passion.

One of her favorite things to bake is bread which could mean that she will be striking first place when it comes to dough.

Maggie has many hobbies outside of baking such as she enjoys canoeing, kayaking and sailing.

If you don’t find her on water, you’ll then find her exploring the UK and seeking any outdoor adventures.

Maggie is now frequently posting Instagram updates about her journey on the show.

What has Maggie done on the Great British Bake Off 2021? 

For the first week of Bake Off, the signature challenge was cake week!

Maggie decided to wow the judges with her ice-cream cornet cake.

The judges said that they felt it looks more like a “plant pot than ice-cream”, but Maggie managed to dismiss the appearance of the cake with the judges being impressed with how delicious the Victorian sponge was.

What has Maggie said about being on the show? 

Maggie has said that when she received the call to say she had won a place to take part in the competition it was “one of the most exciting and unexpected moments”. 

She continued to say how she experienced every emotion during that phone call to the producers, inducing panic.

Although she was anxious she had managed to bake and read a lot through her cookery books during lockdown.

This should mean we see some great bakes from this cook.
