She added: "I decided to apply in the end, and if I am to be honest, never expected to receive a call back.

"When I received a call confirming my place I was in disbelief, was over the moon, I was pinching myself and constantly felt like I must have been dreaming. I was also a little confused, what? me? how? haha.

"But overall ecstatic, felt like I had won the lottery. I still cannot believe it."

Talking about her strengths and weaknesses, she added: "I would say that cakes are my strength and breads and pastries are my weaknesses."
