This bright young chef is from Poole in Dorset and was inspired to up her cooking game during lockdown.

Holly, 29, works as a theatre director when she's not brushing up on her cooking skills.

She co-owns a theatre called The Pen Theatre in South Bermondsey.

In the heats she impressed judges Gregg Wallace and John Torode with braised ox cheek and heritage carrots.

"I basically cook what I like and it’s quite varied!

"I love cooking Asian fusion and also dishes inspired by my travels.

"I do love to add a bit of drama to my dishes.

"Food can be fun as well, right?"

Does Holly have social media?
