GBBO: Ruby to win

She's ELLE's kinda girl

MOST POPULAR

Meet Ruby Tandoh. She is (in her own words) ‘a glutton, a baking addict and a hazard in the kitchen.’
If you’ve tuned in to the Great British Bake Off you’ll already be aware of how impressive Southend-born Ruby’s loaves are. The 21-year-old UCL student beat some 10,000 applicants to be one of the 13 contestants on this year’s BBC2 show.
But it’s not just Ruby’s culinary prowess causing a stir. The former model has been inundated with compliments from Twitter fans who are as enamoured with her eyes as her doughnuts.
In her teens Ruby was signed to Models 1 – the agency that represents ELLE’s October cover star Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Karen Elson, Twiggy and Yasmin Le Bon.
Eating cakes is a favourite pastime at ELLE HQ so we've joined the gang cheerleading for Ruby, because everything she makes looks delicious and she does it in great knitwear.

Our Bookings Editor (resident model and cake expert) Rosie Bendandi says, ‘With her golden skin tone, striking green eyes and tousled blonde-ish locks, the model/baker/philosopher has beauty, brains and perky buns (cooking term). Plus an amazing array of cardigans. What's not to like?’
