Queen Elizabeth is a big fan of the Great British Bake Off

Los Angeles - Nadiya Hussain believes Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip are fans of the Great British Bake Off.

The 31-year-old mother-of-three - who won the last series of the BBC baking contest - was chosen to make the monarch's 90th birthday cake and the Duke of Edinburgh needed no introduction to Nadiya when she presented them with the sweet treat.

Nadiya said: "When the queen introduced me to Prince Philip while I was presenting the cake to them, he said, 'Yes I know who she is - but what flavour is the cake?' so I believe they do watch GBBO.

"I'd done a lemon drizzle for Mary Berry so I figured why not an orange drizzle for the queen. She took away the top tier and I like to imagine her in her slippers having a slice."

Despite her success since winning the show, the occasional Loose Women panellist can't help but feel envious of the new batch of contestants who will be entering the Bake Off tent later this year.

Asked what advice she'd give contestants, she said: "Practice, practice, practice. I'm slightly jealous of the new contestants actually, I want to be back in that tent.''
