In Nadiya's Time to Eat, the Bake Off winner returns with some tips to save time for people who don't have a lot of it

"It’s fresh, you know what you’ve put in it, and all it needs is warming up.

"Not that I’m saying we shouldn’t treat ourselves to a takeaway occasionally. I love putting my feet up and not worrying about cooking," she laughs.
