Great British Bake Off Winner Nadiya Hussain Reveals Why She'd Never Do All Stars Series
Nadiya Hussain may be one of The Great British Bake Off’s most-loved contestants ever, but don’t expect to see her back in the tent again any time soon. The series six winner has revealed she would be reluctant to take part in any sort of All Stars series, admitting she wouldn’t want to put herself through the stress again. Explaining she was “just quite happy with her trophy” after being crowned the 2015 champion, Nadiya said (via Digital Spy): “I don’t know that I would ever do something like [an All Stars series]. “Whoever puts themselves through something like that twice? Once was enough, thank you very much. It was so stressful.”She continued: “Only people who have been in the tent will tell you how stressful it is to be in the actual tent. The perspiration is serious. Always wear dark colours because there’s a lot of sweating, and it’s really stressful. It is really, really stressful.“But I think I’m just quite happy with my trophy, thank you very much. I don’t need another one. Never say never. Never say never. But my goodness, I would never deliberately put myself through that twice,” she added. Since winning Bake Off, Nadiya has been a regular fixture on TV, fronting her own documentary The Chronicles Of Nadiya, as well as hosting Nadiya’s British Food Adventure, The Big Family Cooking Showdown, Nadiya Bakes and Nadiya’s Family Favourites.She has also written five cookbooks, four children’s story and recipe books, a series of novels and an autobiography.In 2019, she was honoured with an MBE for services to broadcasting and to the culinary arts.And while it doesn’t look like we’ll be seeing Nadiya back in the tent, there’s some familiar faces returning for this year’s Christmas and New Year specials of Bake Off. Former contestants James Hillery from the 2017 series, Ruby Bhogal, from the 2018 series, and Rosie Brandreth-Poynter and Jamie Finn from the 2019 series return as they go head to head for the title of Christmas Star Baker. For the New Year special, Bake Off winners Nancy Birtwhistle and Rahul Mandal return to the tent alongside 2019 contestants Helena Garcia and Henry Bird. READ MORE: Nadiya Hussain Reveals She Is Always Stopped And Searched When She Travels To The US Bake Off Finalist Laura Reveals Message Of Support She Received From One Seriously A-List Fan All The Highs And Lows Of This Year’s Emotional Great British Bake Off Final

US Justice Department Probed 'Bribery-For-Pardon Scheme' As Trump Campaigned, Court Reveals
The US Justice Department has spent months investigating a “bribery-for-pardon scheme,” even as President Donald Trump was running for reelection, according to court documents unsealed Tuesday.In a 20-page heavily redacted opinion, dated August 28 but posted Tuesday evening, US District Judge Beryl Howell wrote that attorney-client privilege didn’t protect certain communications if they were alleged to be part of a “bribery-for-pardon scheme.” The communications involved in the bribery investigation had been copied to a third party who was not an attorney, the opinion stated. “In sum, the attorney-client privilege does not protect communications disclosed to third parties and, here [redacted] was such a third party to each of the emails submitted by the government,” the August 28 opinion states. Howell, chief judge of the US District Court for the District of Columbia, presided over special counsel Robert Mueller’s grand jury investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.The court documents reveal that dozens of devices were seized after an unidentified office was searched in response to a warrant. The federal agents were investigating a “secret lobbying scheme” in which certain people “acted as lobbyists to senior White House officials, without complying with the registration requirement,” to secure “a pardon or reprieve of sentence.”The filings did not reveal the names of specific individuals or provide the dates of the alleged actions.Related...

India set Australia 303 to win third one-day international – live!
Updates from Aus vs Ind at Manuka Oval in Canberra India win toss before final match of 2020 ODI seriesAny thoughts? Email or tweet @JPHowcroft 8.20am GMT 9th over: Australia 45-1 (Finch 28, Smith 2) Third life for Finch! This one only just counts though after the batsman checked an uppish drive that flew high to the bowler’s left in his follow-through. Bumrah stuck out a hand but the ball failed to stick. Finch again checks an uppish drive later in the over and is lucky not to pick out square-leg. He’s struggling to read Bumrah off the pitch in the twilight. WinViz shown on @FoxCricket broadcast. Game nicely poised at this early stage of the second innings, with India just ahead according to our prediction model.#AUSvsIND pic.twitter.com/XJpvGXfFIm 8.16am GMT 8th over: Australia 44-1 (Finch 27, Smith 2) Finch has another life! From a no-ball Smith dabs into the covers and takes off but Pandya is onto it like a flash and has an age to throw down the stumps at Finch’s end but to no avail. Australia riding their luck at the moment. They’re helped by Natarajan failing to complete his over with a series of wides passing leg stump with the angle. Eventually he corrects himself and lobs down a half-volley outside off stump for Finch to caress to the boundary in a manner that encourages a statuesque follow-through. Continue reading...
