Sue Perkins

Bake-off-loving broadcaster

This London-born comedian has won our hearts as a broadcaster and a judge of master bakers. Sue has travelled lots for work and fun, and as a freelancer, she is a big fan of bite-size escapes: ‘If I leave the country for more than 24 hours on a non-work trip, I believe I will never be employed again,’ she says. ‘So I take mini-breaks around the British Isles, maybe six long weekends a year. Usually when I go to far-flung climes, it’s work.’ Along with her Great British Bake Off presenting partner, Mel Giedroyc, she has been entertaining the UK for years, while also edifying audiences with solo projects that have spanned art and history documentaries, current-affairs and music programmes, and even her own sitcom Heading Out for which she also composed the music.
