Project Bake Off

If you know the difference between a soggy bottom and a showstopper, there’s a good chance you’ve been topping off your Tuesday with Channel 4’s the Great British Bake Off (GBBO).

Series 9 began at the end of August with 12 budding bakers putting their skills to the test and with most of the technical and superbake challenges out of the way, the amateurs have well and truly been separated from the serious contenders (Bear with, the rail link is coming).

Among the remaining contestants is 29-year-old Ruby Bhogal, a fellow member of the railway family. The GBBO star and Network Rail project manager has impressed judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith with her baking skills.

Despite her showstopper cake toppling over in episode seven, Ruby has become a fan favourite and with only a handful of episodes left, she has every chance of coming out on top.

All of us at RailStaff wish you the best of luck Ruby – the rail industry is behind you!
