Get to know MasterChef 2024 contestant Haddy, including their age, profession and hopes for the competition.

Age: 29

From: Bournemouth, via The Gambia

Cooking Style: "I love cooking traditional Gambian dishes and I'm very proud of them. They remind me of beautiful childhood memories of my Mamboi (grandma) cooking. I find so much joy in the kitchen and loved helping her to cook.

"When I moved to England five years ago, my new kitchen was very different to what I was used to. For the first time ever I had an oven in the kitchen – I'd never used one before. I wanted to learn what I could make using an oven, my mother-in-law offered to teach me some British recipes and I also like finding recipes online. I always add extra spice to recipes – especially chilli."

Why MasterChef?: "I've always wanted to show off Gambian cuisine and share our beautiful dishes with the world! I also want to make sure my daughters, who are born and raised in the UK, are able to appreciate our cuisine and celebrate their Gambian heritage."

Ambition: "I would love to write a cookbook. Another dream would be to have television show where I travel to The Gambia and showcase how wonderful our food, especially our street food, is."

MasterChef continues Thursday at 8pm on BBC One and iPlayer.
