A former teacher from Radlett hopes to rise to the top at this year’s Great British Bake Off.

Stacey Hart, 42, is one of 12 amateur bakers competing this season, which is the first to be broadcast on Channel 4.

Her husband, James, a former director of ASOS, tweeted: “My determined, talented wife @Staceydeehart has made it onto The Great British Bake Off. Go Stacey! Go Bakers! #GBBO.”

The mother-of-three apparently started taking baking seriously at university, and likes to incorporate her Jewish heritage into her craft.

She says she makes a Jewish bread called a Challah every Friday.

The GBBO website also says she is a “self-confessed perfectionist” who does not allow anything to leave the kitchen unless it’s perfect.

Whether she will make star baker, or be binned like a baked Alaska, we’ll have to watch to find out.

GBBO is on Channel 4 at 8pm on Tuesday, August 29.

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
