The writer, actor and author is one of three finalists taking part in tonight’s (Friday’s) grand final of the hit BBC TV show.

Former Hitchin Girls’ School pupil Emma, is taking on England footballer Danny Mills and TV presenter Michael Underwood.

Emma’s dad Tony Williams told the Comet, he and wife Glenda would be glued to the screen, watching their daughter as she had been sworn to secrecy about the show’s outcome.

He said: “As she went through each week, it was very exciting.

“She was always a good cook for home cooking.” Mr Williams said Emma had dedicated a lot of time to the show and had managed to get experience in top restaurants to hone her skills.

“She was doing a lot of her practice meals here in Hitchin and some in her flat in London,” he said.
