Natalie Cassidy shocks fans as she reveals daughter has been on Junior Bake Off
NATALIE Cassidy surprised her fans this evening when she revealed her daughter Eliza has secretly been taking part in Junior Bake Off.
The EastEnders actress, 38, only shared the news that it was her daughter tonight as she sadly lost her place in the tent.
She admitted she had initially dashed Eliza’s hopes of even getting on the show – but was now full of admiration for her, saying she is “the proudest mum alive”.
Sharing a picture of the youngster with a mixing bowl and whisk, Natalie gushed: “This is Eliza. She was 10 and decided to enter for the junior bake off. I said, oh Eliza, you’ll never get through, thousands apply and I don’t want you to be disappointed. She got through.
“And her confidence, determination and maturity has blown me away. I am proud of my daughters everyday. But to watch one of them be so kind and helpful to others in the tent every night this week, has made me the proudest mum alive.
“I haven’t said much about it- Nothing to do with me whatsoever. This was her adventure. Thank you @britishbakeoff for having her and looking after her so well throughout the process. My advice to all. When your child wants to do something don’t stop them. Dreams do come true. ♥️???”
