"Great British Bake Off" finalist Kim-Joy wants to use baking to "help people with their mental health".

The 27-year-old mental health specialist will take on Rahul Mandal and Ruby Bhogal on Tuesday's final (30.10.18), and admitted she would love to use her "Bake Off" platform to pen baking books.

She said: "I would love to write baking books. I would also like to combine baking with helping people with their mental health.

"I have been passionate about that for a long time. I hope this will be a life change and the start of new adventures."

Kim-Joy admitted the whole experience of the show has given herself a confidence boost, because she used to be "extremely socially anxious".

She added: "The best thing about taking part in "Bake Off "is my confidence has grown massively. I used to be extremely socially anxious and have worked on that my whole life, trying to prove to myself I can talk to people and do "normal" things.

"I have gone from whispering in public, to gradually breaking out of my shell at university, to working in mental health and helping others - and to now having been on TV."

Recalling her feelings going into the filming for the final, Kim-Joy admitted she felt more "relaxed" than she'd ever felt during her run on the baking contest.

She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Going into the final was the most relaxed I'd felt out of all the weeks in the tent. I felt so happy I had got that far, with two other brilliant bakers. It felt like we were all winners. There was no fear of being the one who is sent home, as we were all going home after that week."

"The Great British Bake Off" final takes place tonight at 8pm on Channel 4.
