It was a day of sweet treats in Ely as Great British Bake Off star Kim-Joy gave a talk about her new book.

The 28-year-old, known for her creativity in the famous bunting-bedecked tent, spoke at a sold out event at The Maltings last night (September 10).

Dozens gathered to meet the baker and grab a singed copy of her book 'Baking with Kim-Joy' after she made it to the final three of the popular baking competition last year.

Arriving at Ely Station yesterday afternoon, Kim-Joy Hewlett happily posed for photos with Greater Anglia train staff before visiting the cathedral.

She even popped into Samovar Tea House in Fore Hill for lunch.
