Age: 67

From: Bolton

Job: Pastor

Lee was originally a builder but had a major career change in the 1980s when he began to study theology. Since then he's worked in various pastoral ministries and is currently the Pastor of a local church in Bolton where he lives.

Lee began to bake in the 80s after a cricket accident left him with time off work. After catching the baking bug, Lee's not stopped since!

Lee, who is a father of two and has four young grandchildren is a fan of traditional flavours such as cherry, hazelnut, vanilla and chocolate. However he can be tempted with a taste of the exotic every now and again.

The Great British Bake Off 2016 airs Wednesday nights on BBC One
