How old is Nadiya Hussain and what’s her net worth? – The Sun

NADIYA Hussain baked her way to stardom with her exquisite designs when she was crowned champion of The Great British Bake Off back in 2015.

Since her victory she has fronted a range of TV programmes, including her recent Nadiya's American Adventure. Here's what you need to know about the star.

Who is Nadiya Hussain?

The 35-year-old is one of six children, with three sisters and two brothers, and her father was a chef who owned an Indian restaurant.

Her mother had no interest in food, however, and used the family oven for storage.

Nadiya nevertheless developed an interest in cooking during her school years.

She then taught herself how to cook like a pro by reading piles of recipe books and watching instructional videos on YouTube.

She has an obsession with fish fingers, claiming to have once eaten 18 in a row and this led to one of her most creative dishes – fish finger lasagne.

The star baker later married and moved to Leeds, where she began studying for an Open University degree.

But it was her stint in the Great British Bake Off that put Nadiya on the map and made her known and loved by the British public.

Nadiya's husband is Abdal Hussain, a technical manager at Computer Sciences based in Leeds.

They married in 2004 when she was 19-years-old in a traditional ceremony in Bangladesh.

The couple had an arranged marriage – having only met once before the big day.

Referring to the arrangement, Nadiya said "It’s tough – you are pretty much marrying a complete stranger…we had to live through the good and the bad, and have come out the other side."

In December 2018, the devoted husband and wife decided to marry each other again.

Abdal has always been a great support for his wife and fans swooned over him throughout the competition in which he was deemed a "hunk" by "Bake-Off" viewers at the time.

Nadiya and Abdal have three children together – two sons,  Musa and Dawud, and a daughter, Maryam.

What's is Nadiya Hussain's net worth?

Nadiya's net worth is estimated to be £3.7 million.

As well as being a TV star, Nadiya has made money as an author.

She is author of a children's book of stories and recipes, Bake Me A Story, as well as novels including The Secret Lives of the Amir Sisters.

She is also Contributing Editor to BBC's Good Food, as well as writing a monthly column for The Time Magazine.

Her recipes have also featured in BBC'S Good Food magazine as well as The Sun on Sunday's Fabulous magazine, The Guardian and The Telegraph.

When did Nadiya win the Great British Bake Off?

In 2015 Nadiya was crowned the winner of The Great British Bake Off.

She was the sixth champion to have won the hit show.

During the final, she baked 16 iced buns, a raspberry-flavoured mille-feuille, and a multi-layered cake called "My Big Fat British Wedding Cake".

During her acceptance speech, she said: "I'm never gonna put boundaries on myself ever again. I'm never gonna say I can't do it.

"I'm never gonna say 'maybe'. I'm never gonna say, 'I don't think I can.' I can and I will."

What other TV shows has Nadiya been in?

Nadiya regularly appears on The One Show on BBC One as well as Loose Women.

She had her own cookery show, The Chronicles of Nadiya in 2016.

And then went on to front another series in 2017 called Nadiya's British Food Adventure, in conjunction with her new book of the same name.

The show followed her on a road trip around Britain to discover traditional and more quirky British dishes before recreating them back in her kitchen.

The baker hosted the Big Family Cooking Showdown on the BBC with Zoe Ball in 2017.

From July 2018 she hosted Nadiya's Family Favourites on BBC Two – a show with recipes for family and friends.

Nadiya starred in a BBC documentary about mental health called Nadiya: Anxiety and Me which airs May 15, 2019.

And in 2019 she appeared in a six-part series on BBC2 called Time To Eat which explored delicious quick to make meals on a budget.


Nadiya also appeared on the Big Family Cooking Showdown.

She addressed her own mental health struggles in Nadiya: Anxiety and Me where she tried to find the source for her anxiety as well as treat it.

In 2020, Nadiya launched her own show Nadiya Bakes, in which she shows viewers how to create classic bakes but with modern twists, and is also hosting Nadiya's American Adventure.Nadiya Hussain says royal courtiers wouldn’t let her high five or chest bump the Queen on The Jonathan Ross Show
