Ex Head Teacher Val is originally from Conisbrough near Doncaster but currently resides near Yeovil with her husband.

Val has been baking for decades after taking over cooking for the family when she was 15.

Val has a very traditional baking style and (apparently) she can make the classics with her eyes closed.

However Val also likes to use the internet to find new recipes to experiment with.

Working as a substitute teacher two days a week, Val loves to inspire her students to bake.

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