Nadiya: I had panic attacks during Bake Off

Nadiya Hussain has told BBC Radio 5 Live that she was having panic attacks when she appeared on The Great British Bake Off.

Speaking to Nihal Arthanayake she said: "As many panic attacks I was having on 'Bake Off' I was having at home."

Nadiya said no one on The Great British Bake Off knew about the panic attacks.

A new BBC One show, Nadiya: Anxiety and Me, explores how she has kept her anxiety a secret.
