Jon Jenkins Profile.JPG

From in Newport, South Wales, Jon Jenkins won the hearts of thousands of viewers during the 2018 GBBO series.  Not only did he become known for being a proud Welshman, baking a variety of Welsh bakes most weeks, he also demonstrated his love of loud Hawaiian shirts, by wearing a different shirt each week, including a Christmas themed Hawaiian shirt, starring Santa in a grass skirt.


Since being in the Bake Off tent, Jon has had a hugely positive response from the public and social media, which has given him opportunities such as working for the BBC as part of Children in Need, on BBC Radio Wales as part of the Foodie Friday programme as well as numerous food festival demonstrations. In addition, he has now joined the Bake With A Legend team and is looking forward to teaching some great bakes and sharing some stories from his time in the tent!
