- Nadiya Hussain will work with the BBC in a spin-off cookery programme
- The show has been given the working title The Chronicles of Nadiya
- Twitter users took to social media to applaud the choice in title
Nadiya Hussain's post Bake Off career has gone from strength-to-strength.
The 2015 winner got the royal seal of approval last week when she baked an orange drizzle cake for the Queen's 90th birthday celebrates, and just a few days later she released news of her upcoming cookbook.
And now the mother-of-three has impressed her Twitter followers with the reveal of the title of her very own solo cookery show - The Chronicles Of Nadiya.
The BBC has announced that they will work with Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain in a new spin off cookery programme called The Chronicles of Nadiya
The news of her solo cookery show was announced on the BBC today along with the wildly popular working title.
The BBC said: 'The Chronicles Of Nadiya (working title), an exuberant food-inspired journey from Nadiya’s birthplace in Luton to her family village in the north east of Bangladesh.
'This two-part series combines personal revelation with fascinating food travelogue and explores the hidden world of Bangladesh and the exceptional dishes typical of the country.'
The name takes inspiration from the C.S Lewis series The Chronicles Of Narnia and it wasn't long before the baker's followers took to Twitter to applaud the show's title.
Fans of the 2015 winner took to Twitter to applaud her on the pun-tastic working title of the show
Meg May McAulay tweeted to say: 'The Chronicles of Nadiya is possibly the best title for a show EVER.'
Chris Dunne claimed it could be the best title of 2016: 'If 'The Chronicles of Nadiya' really is the name of @BegumNadiya's new show I'm calling best tv title of the year.'
Razwana Wahid showed her appreciation adding: 'The Chronicles of Nadiya' as a writer I'M IN LOVE WITH THIS TV SHOW TITLE.'
Many of he fans agreed that this was the 'best' title of any cookery show they had come across
While Willow used it as an excuse to gush over their favourite cook: 'I love you, I want you to be my mum and you have the best title for your new show 'The Chronicles of Nadiya''.
Sophie Hall says that it fitted so well that the author could have written it himself. She tweeted: The title of Nadiya's new show is SO GOOD I genuinely think this was CS Lewis' plan all along.'
No release date has been provided for the the show yet but while fans await the show Nadiya recently revealed she has other exciting plans in the pipeline.
The news of Nadiya's new show comes just five days after it was a revealed that Nadiya would share her Queen's birthday cake recipe with the world in a new cook book.
Nadiya Hussain will release her first cook book on June 16 which will include the recipe for the Queen's birthday cake which she presented to Her Majesty yesterday
The mother-of-three's publicist confirmed to MailOnline on Friday that her first book, Nadiya's Kitchen, is set for release this June (also the month in which Her Majesty celebrates her official birthday) and will include instructions for making the orange drizzle cake.
Nadiya's Kitchen will contain a variety of family-friendly recipes based on those she uses to feed her own three hungry children.
The Luton-born chef's simplified version of the royal cake appears alongside other tempting recipes such as Beetroot and Mackerel Crescents, Manchego and Chorizo Calzone and Salted Pretzel Fudge.
Speaking of her latest cookbook Nadiya, 31, says: 'My kitchen is so much more than a room. It’s the place where so much more happens than just cooking or baking. It’s the place where I cook for sustenance. Bake for love. Congregate for company.
'Dance for fun. The exclusive venue for date night. Tea time and after school tantrums. The place where we cook together and everyone’s the boss. My kitchen is so much more than my kitchen. It’s our kitchen.'
Nadiya's kitchen contains over 100 family recipes inspired by her own approach to cooking
Nadiya took home the crown at the 2015 Great British Bake Off and while waiting for judgement from Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry was nerve-racking enough, it paled in comparison to the moment Her Majesty cut the cake to sample her recipe today.
Although The Queen opted not to take a bite, she commented on the beauty of the cake - before adding that it 'sounds delicious.'
However, the recipe and design failed to impress everyone.
The internet was left divided - with many observers insisting that they did not believe it was fit for a Queen and was 'too plain', 'amateurish' and 'like the Leaning Tower of Pisa'.
Posting on Twitter, Ruqaiya said: 'As much as I love Nadiya Hussain, I think the cake she made for the Queen looked very circus like.'
User @lolaslittleblog followed that up saying: 'Can't say I'm impressed with the cake Nadiya made the Queen,' before Amy Gullon added: 'Loved Nadiya on GBBO but good lord that cake for queenie was hideous.' (sic)
Others were impressed with the culinary creation, with Twitter users commenting that it was 'wonderful'
Andy Elliot added: 'Oh leave out the abuse of Nadiya Hussain. I struggle to not burn toast and she had to single-handedly bake a cake for the Queen.'
Rebecca added that she felt bad for criticising the baking champion: 'Feel bad but I didn't really rate Nadiya' cake. Dunno. Looked sort of off can't decide why.'

Although she did compare The Queen and Mary Berry, who is culinary royalty in Britain, Nadiya admitted she chose her recipe, an orange drizzle cake, based on how much the judge liked one of her dishes in the competition.
She said: 'I kind of thought, if I did a lemon drizzle and it was good enough for Mary Berry, I reckon I could change it up and do something similar for the Queen.'
The Bake Off winner met Queen Elizabeth near Windsor Castle yesterday, as thousands lined the streets to celebrate the Royal on this historic day.
While some were quick to criticise the baker's efforts many took to Twitter to congratulate Nadiya on her triumphant bake
Nadiya, now a national treasure since winning the competition last year, shook Elizabeth II's hand as they met, and presented the majestic orange drizzle cake with orange curd, orange buttercream and fondant.
Before cutting the cake, the Queen had chatted briefly to Nadiya by the gold and purple cake - both Royal colours regularly worn by Elizabeth II - and joked 'does it cut?', to which the baker replied 'I hope so'.
It was a light-hearted moment between the two, but Nadiya has since revealed that despite her apparent confidence, she was actually 'super-nervous'.
However, Twitter users have speculated as to whether the star baker used eggs from caged hens after she shared this photo of her ingredients
She told ITV News: 'She said, "will it cut?" I said "yeah it will cut," thinking "oh God, it better cut".'
As well as criticism over the appearance of the cake Nadiya also came under fire for the ingredients that she appeared to have used.
Fans speculated that the 31-year-old baker used eggs from caged hens in her orange drizzle cake for the Queen.
The mother-of-three shared a photo of her ingredients used in the cake this morning on her Twitter page commenting: 'I found the eggs under the reminiscence of what is her HRH cake. I see crepe suzette #HappyBirthdayYourMajesty.'
In the picture a large clear plastic box of a dozen eggs can be seen and it was the packaging that concerned many.
Jalal Ahmed replied to the tweet asking: 'Do you use free range eggs in your cooking? I ask free range eggs usually don't come in that packaging.'
Bob joined the speculation adding: 'Hope those are free range Nadiya...' Amy Elizabeth replied to Bob's tweet: 'They definitely aren't! How awful!!'
However, hopeful Bob added: 'I'm hoping against hope that Nadiya gets them from a special egg supplier who puts them in non-free range style packaging...'
Several users did come forward to defend Nadiya claiming that free range eggs were available in that packaging.
Nazneen jumped to her defense adding: 'actually asda sell the larger box of free range eggs in this packaging so for all those worried. They are free range.'
Hookawooly tweeted to say they thought there had been an overreaction: 'I get free range eggs in clear plastic recycled boxes. People need to chill their self-righteous beans.'
The MailOnline has contacted Nadiya for a comment.
