Great British Bake Off contestant Lizzie Acker has been bringing joy to the homes of the nation both with her cooking and unforgettable quips.
Lizzie, who lives with her partner and their dog, Prudence, in an annex in her parents’ garden, is attempting to win over the judges in GBBO 2021.
The 28-year-old started the series with a surreal story relayed to presenter Noel Fielding about an ‘unhinged’ ostrich riding off with her as a child.
The tale seemed so incredible, she later took to social media to post photographic evidence of the ostrich fiasco.
Lizzie also admitted to the other GBBO presenter Matt Lucas that she was watching Harry Potter instead of practising baking.
Other gems from Lizzie include: “Stick to what you know when you don’t know nothing.”
And sharing that her “deceased pet pig Susie” was the inspiration behind her Pig Banquet Milk Bread Display showstopper.
She also revealed on social media this month that she is severely dyslexic and on the attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) spectrum.
Lizzie is pictured on her Instagram page with the latest GBBO cookbook The Great British Bake Off: A Bake for all Seasons featuring judges recipes and favourites from the 2021 bakers.
She said: “For anyone to see themselves in a book is surreal, but for me it feels super odd. I am severely dyslexic and on the ADHD spectrum. I don’t read books, so having recipes I came up with in a book is mind blowing.”
