Regular This Morning expert Juliet Sear has come a long way from her humble beginnings in Leigh.

Sear is an author, baker and TV cook from Leigh with a regular slot on ITV's This Morning.

The mum-of-three began her baking business Fancy Nancy in 2008 after deciding to take her cake-making abilities to a new level.

Her skills were honed through years of making cakes for her children.

The bakery in Leigh quickly rose in popularity, gaining famous clientele including This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby herself as well as rapper Dizzee Rascal.

She even made the official 50th birthday cake for ITV soap Coronation Street.

She even has royal connections as her bakery became the official supplier to Harvey Nichols and Fortnum and Mason – the grocer to the royal family.

The shop's fame led to Juliet often being featured on television.

Sadly, her cakes weren't the only thing in tiers as she shut Fancy Nancy's doors in Leigh's Rectory Road in 2016.

At the time of the closure, she said: “It has not been an easy decision because I love Leigh and the customers here.

“My dad has helped out with the business since the start and so he was upset when I broke the news to him. But I think it’s the right move for the business.”

But her fans can still see the Leigh native regularly as she's turned her attention to TV, with her slot on This Morning seeing her make things from slime to eclairs - and even Holly Willoughby’s birthday cake.

When she's not on the show, her 90.1k followers on Instagram can get baking inspiration from her posts and sneak peaks behind the scenes on set at ITV and STV.
