Great British Bake Off returned to our screens on Tuesday 22nd, bringing us cakes, the famous Battenberg and mountainous bakes.

The new cast were put to the ultimate test against the clock. It comes after they isolated for seven weeks away from their families in order to be part of the popular baking show.

During last night’s new 2020 episode, fans quickly wanted to find out more about the cast members. One baker that viewers were particularly fond of is Lottie. So who is Lottie from Bake Off? We found her on Instagram!

Who is Lottie?

Lottie is a 31-year-old pantomime producer from West Sussex. She believes baking is in her blood as her Lancastrian great grandmother was also a cake-baker.

Since Lottie was young, she chose to watch cooking shows rather than play with her toys, and was often found making notes from cookery books. The GBBO baker calls herself a “perpetually frustrated perfectionist”.

When she’s not baking or busy with her career producing pantomime, Lottie plays computer games with her young cousins, or practises yoga.

The yoga-loving baker was seen in the first episode facing a few issues, such as her sponge being too warm. However she managed to tackle any problems she faced with humour.

In the final cake round, Lottie attempted to make a Louis Theroux cake – with judge Prue saying it looked like him. While making the cake, Lottie was told by host Noel Fielding that it looked like a “devil cake” as she had used a skull mould at the start, but she turned things around and wowed the judges.

She is now through to the second round – biscuit week!

She doesn’t just make cake, but savoury treats too, as seen in the picture below. Lottie also shares the odd selfie, but mostly posts pictures of her eating desserts – and better yet, her sweet baking creations!

The GBBO star also doesn’t shy away from what she calls her “dark humour” on social media. While setting up to look back on her time on the Channel 4 show for the first time, she said: “Preparing to watch @britishbakeoff alone —> my family arriving in time to take the piss at every opportunity.”
