Great British Bake Off winner Candice Brown is doing her bit to ensure pub stars of the future rise to the top.

The champion of the 2016 series will show off her skills at a parliamentary event that will highlight the opportunities for young people in the pub and bar trade.

She will demonstrate her baking and speak to MPs at the National Apprenticeship Week event on Tuesday (March 6).

Candice, who was brought up in a pub, said: "My parents ran several thriving, successful pubs in which I learnt many practical and social skills.

"To see young people starting their career journey in such a diverse sector which gives them the chance to take unconventional routes to pursue their passion is a great opportunity and I look forward to meeting our innovators and future leaders at this stimulating event."

More than 120 young apprentices will meet with ministers, MP's and leading industry figures.

Keith Knowles, chairman of the Perceptions Group, who organise the event, said. "Over 70 MP's have already registered their attendance and this year we have an increase in the number of parents attending as well as good representation from the education sector.

"We still have a long way to go in educating those who regulate our sector as to the huge contribution hospitality makes to the economy of this country."
