Great British Bake Off star and motorhome fan Karen Wright (pictured) will join renowned Yorkshire chef Steph Moon on the Great Holiday Home Show Cookery Stage this September.

The countdown is now on for the Great Holiday Home Show which will be held at the Great Yorkshire Showground in Harrogate from Friday 8 September to Sunday 10 September for the first time.

Karen, from Wakefield, was one of 12 contestants on the Great British Bake Off in 2018 and says she loves baking while she's away on holiday. She will be giving her top tips for baking in a caravan and demonstrating recipes from her new book ‘Meals on the Move’, and personally signed copies will be on sale at the show.

Karen said: “Anything can and does happen in caravans and motorhomes. My caravan now doubles as my prep kitchen when I work at food festivals. It's fantastic, as I have everything I need and get all the benefits of campsite life. Fresh air, changes of scenery, companionship, solitude, we all have our own reasons why we enjoy living our dreams, and for me the list is long – I look forward to sharing my top tips at the Great Holiday Home Show next month.”

Multi award winning consultant chef Steph Moon will host the cookery theatre throughout the three days of the Great Holiday Home Show.

Steph said: “I am really looking forward to this brand-new show having stayed in many holiday homes and now owning my own camper van, I am a huge fan of this lifestyle. Cooking in a confined space has its challenges, Karen and I look forward to showing you how tasty, easy and fun this can be.”

Alongside the cookery theatre, there will be the Great Holiday Home Stage hosted by TV Presenter Christine Talbot. There will be a show on stage every hour, to inspire and entertain.
