Finalist of the Great British Bake Off 2020, Laura Adlington has been the stand out star of the nation’s favourite baking show. Laura’s sense of humour, positive outlook, resilience and messy baking has had viewers falling in love with not only her baking but also her wonderful personality. Laura is a Gravesend girl, born and bred, who decided to enter the competition after realising her flair and passion for baking. Her flavours are the winning ingredient that the judges championed and admired week after week and has seen her through to the final where she created the most incredible rainbow themed showstopper. Since leaving the show Laura has also shared her baking skills on BBC Breakfast showcasing how to make the perfect pancake for Shrove Tuesday.
Laura aims to use the platform Bake Off has provided to encourage people to get into baking and not be ashamed to be messy when you’re doing it! Your bakes don’t have to be perfect as she believes it’s the taking part and enjoying the process of having something delicious to eat at the end!
Laura has amassed an incredible social media following on her Instagram channel. Her followers love checking out her delicious baking recipes as well as her open and honest discussions about mental health and body positivity. Laura is a champion for body positivity and is keen help people of all shapes and sizes feel good about themselves. Laura has collaborated brands such as Maltesers, Benchmarx Kitchens and is a brand ambassador for clothing brand Simply Be.
Laura is also a volunteer for the Samaritans where she offers her time to give emotional support to people who are going through a difficult time. Laura’s calm, kind and caring personality has led her to become an ambassador for the Samaritan’s Brew Monday Campaign in January 2021, where she made her first appearance on ITV’s Lorraine encouraging people to get talking to their friends and loved ones over a cuppa and of course a slice of delicious cake!
Laura is huge fan of musical theatre both as a performer and as a spectator, and bonded with Bake-Off presenter Matt Lucas over this shared passion. She lives in Kent with her husband, also called Matt, who is a Police Community Support Officer.
