After years of baking at home and cultivating her creativity and skill, Briony May first came to the public’s attention as she launched onto our screens during 9 stressful weeks in the Bake Off tent on the 2018 series of The Great British Bake Off. Progressing through the competition to the semi-finals, Briony May's humour and warmth, coupled with her resilience and ingenuity saw her become a firm favourite with the audience.
Briony is currently working with Asda’s Good Food magazine, publishing baking recipes for children. She is also working with Gousto and will be appearing at the Great British Food Festival, Bishop Auckland Food Festival and CarFest later this year.
Hailing from Bristol, when not creating new baking combinations in the kitchen, Briony May can be found outdoors or in the gym as she loves running and after completing several 10k runs, she escalated to two half marathons and is currently training for her third!
Having studied Spanish and French at Durham University, achieving a 2:1 with a distinction in Spoken Spanish, Briony May went on to travel the world before qualifying as a secondary school teacher of Spanish and French, earning her Post Graduate Certificate in Education at the University of Bristol. After teaching for six years, she is currently a stay-at-home-mum to her lovely daughter, Nora.
