The youngest contestant in Great British Bake Off history has given birth to her first child.

Martha Collison, who made history when she competed in the iconic tent aged just 17 a decade ago, has shared the wonderful news with her followers on social media.

She posted an adorable montage of her and her husband Michael Haywood’s bundle of joy as they brought him home from hospital, and she has revealed their baby boy’s unique name.

‘My sunshine is here ☀️ Our little Kenny arrived last Saturday afternoon, 9 days overbaked and weighing 8lb 4oz,’ she wrote.

Revealing his full name, she added: ‘Kenaniah Jude, you’ve changed our whole world and we are so grateful you are ours 🙏🏼’

Fellow Bake Off alumni Rahul Mandal was among those to response with well wishes, as he commented: ‘Awww congratulations Martha, this is a brilliant news.’
