Nancy rises to BBC “Bake Off” success

Reaching a record 12 million viewers nationwide, this year’s BBC One hit baking show, the Great British Bake Off, was won by one of our alumni.

If you caught the finals of the show in early October, you might have recognised 2014 winner, Nancy Birtwhistle, wearing a University of Lincoln graduation gown, in a photo they showed of her during the show.

Nancy, who still lives in Lincolnshire, graduated with an MBA (Masters in Business Administration) from our predecessor institution in Hull in 1995 and has since worked as a manager in the healthcare sector.

We were delighted to learn of her success on the Bake Off, of which she told us “when I was studying for my MBA, I never imagine that one day I would be winning such a competition”.

You can keep up to date with Nancy’s latest news via Twitter and her website which is due for launch shortly.
