Hussain, 36, said: “I’m so excited for Nadiya’s Fast Flavours! I’m going to be bringing a whole host of new everyday recipes to the table, that are easily achievable but fizzing with flavour.

“This new series is packed full of dishes that will enlighten and entertain, proof that you don’t need a special occasion to try out bold, exciting flavours that will taste great and make you feel amazing.”

Recipes to feature in Fast Flavours include custard French toast with pistachio crumb, Bombay mix burgers, lemon and basil shortbread and coffee glazed focaccia.

Catherine Catton, head of commissioning, popular factual and factual entertainment, said: “We are delighted to be working with Nadiya again on this uplifting series as she shares with us her brilliant, innovative and delicious recipes.”

Nadiya’s Fast Flavours, which will include six 30-minute episodes, is made by Wall To Wall Media.
