To husband Abdal
Two weddings are better than one, right? The Great British Bake Off winner and facial expression QUEEN Nadiya Hussain is set to wed husband Abdal again, after marrying him in Bangladesh 11 years ago.
This time, they are planning a British ceremony – having married in accordance with Islam tradition the first time.
AND (drumroll plz) she’s getting a wedding cake this time!
Speaking to Woman, she said: ‘We’re married Islamically, but we’ve never done the proper vows here, so we’re talking about making it all official.
‘It’s a great excuse for a party! Muslim couples need to take part in a civil ceremony as well as a religious wedding for their marriage to be recognised under British law.’
Her marriage with Abdal was arranged when she was aged 19 – and the GBBO winner said that it isn’t easy, but also that she is very happy.

‘Marriage isn’t easy, especially when you don’t know each other very well,’ she admits. ‘We got married six months after meeting. There were definitely times when I could have said: “I’m done. I’m not enjoying this any more.”
‘But we’ve always been very happy. We’re one of the lucky ones.’
We wonder who’s making the cake…
