Aged 33, Lanarkshire resident, Kevin is competing in this year's Bake Off. The music teacher has been baking for fun since the age of 17 and is also an accomplished musician himself.

Kevin’s main instrument is the saxophone, but he is also skilled when it comes to playing other musical instruments like the piano, clarinet, and flute.

He is married to his wife Rachel and loves playing board games with his siblings and their partners. 

Beyond his love for baking, music and family, Kevin surrounds himself with pets and is a big animal lover. 

In the kitchen, Kevin believes in using seasonal ingredients and loves using an interesting combination of fruits, herbs, nuts, and spices, believing presentation to come naturally to him.

Autumn-themed flavours like mixed spice, apples and caramel are also his favourite.
