She said: "I saw a cake decorating competition for the show advertised on Facebook last year.

Chloe has been baking professionally for four years.

"I applied but unfortunately didn’t get through to the final. I applied again this year as I love the show anyway and I got through the various stages with my own design for a Christmas cake and made the final which is on the show."

She set up her own cake making business Chloe’s Cakes and Bakes around four years ago.

She added: "I have always enjoyed baking for others so thought I’d give it a go as a business.

"It is just something that I do part time as I also work part time at Doncaster Royal Infirmary.

"I’d done plenty of baking before but never iced or decorated a cake, until I was asked to create a communion cake for a neighbour's daughter. I fell in love with cake decorating from there. I’m completely self taught and certainly like to challenge myself."
