TV legend Claudia Winkleman has been confirmed to present this year’s Baking Industry Awards (BIA).

Now in its 28th year, the Studio 54-themed awards ceremony will be hosted by Winkleman, known for her presenting roles on Strictly Come Dancing and The Great British Sewing Bee.

Winkleman is no stranger to bakery, having appeared on celebrity Bake-Off in 2013. Despite her efforts, she decided she would stick to presenting… and will be getting her dancing shoes to join the bakers at the disco ball-studded event. 

The long-respected awards will take place on Wednesday 9 September, at the Park Lane Hilton in London.

Guests can enjoy a night of networking and entertainment as the 2015 winners are announced. To book your tickets today, call Elizabeth Ellis on 01293 846593 or email
