She revealed the news on ITV's Loose Women saying the cake would be "very citrussy".

Master baker Nadiya considered doing a fruit cake but told the panel: "I thought let's do something a little bit different".

The mother-of-three told a cute anecdote about her daughter's reaction to the news.

She said: "When I told the kids (I was making a cake for the Queen), the boys were great at keeping it a secret. I told my daughter and she said, 'Oh Mary Berry? You've made lots of cakes for Mary Berry."

Her culinary delight will be delivered to the Queen personally next Thursday on her 90th at Windsor Castle's Guildhall.
