WHEN Laura Adlington isn't busy baking tasty treats in the Great British Bake Off tent, she can sit back and relax in her picture perfect home.
The popular Channel 4 show returned to our screens last night and the 31-year-old from Gravesend impressed the judges with her very own Freddie Mercury cake.
But it's not just her baked goods that look amazing as Laura also has a very lovely home too.
The baker has given a sneak peek into her beautiful home that she shares with her husband and police community support officer Matt.
Her kitchen boasts pristine white cupboards, matching utensils and wooden work tops.
The cooking space is decorated with fresh flowers and hand written cards that fit in perfectly with the simple yet stylish interior.
But arguably her garden is the most impressive part of their humble abode.
It features a gorgeous koi pond, lavish outdoor seating and their very own outdoor pizza oven.
Matt took to Instagram last year to share some before and after pictures of the space and captioned the post: "I started planning the garden just over a year ago and can now finally say that it's finished!
"It's been a lot of hard work but so worth it and Laura and I can spend the summer enjoying it.
"The koi pond is 6ft deep and all the pipework and filters are hidden away."
Laura's passion for baking started when she was just eight-years-old, but admitted that it was only recently that she realised how good she actually is at it.
She loves creating things that show off her decorating skills and believes that she works very well under pressure.
Speaking about her time on the show, Laura said: "It was so surreal walking into the tent for the first time. My stomach was in knots and I was so nervous but excited at the same time.
"It was a dream come true to finally be in 'the' tent. I kept pinching myself."
Last night the first episode of GBBO was delayed by five minutes so that Boris Johnson could make a speech to the nation about the current coronavirus pandemic.
Viewers were left in stitches when Matt Lucas mocked the Prime Minister'sspeech just moments after it aired during his sketch on the popular C4 show last night.
And Laura is definitely a huge fan of the comedian.
She added: "I was really excited about the whole experience but I think I was especially excited to meet [new host] Matt Lucas.
"I saw him in Les Mis last year and he was incredible. I was very star struck when I first saw him and made a bit of a fool out of myself. I think my first words to him were 'OMG I love you'."
Loriea Campbell-Clare was the first to be sent home last night after failing to impress judges Paul Hollywood and Preu Leith.
Laura is now one of 11 other bakers who are in with the chance of following in David Atherton's footsteps and being crowned winner of the baking competition.
