Kadeena Cox age, Paralympics career and TV appearances as she takes on Celebrity Bake Off – Metro

Paralympian Kadeena Cox MBE is one of the final famous faces set to have a brush with the Celebrity Bake Off tent as the series comes to an end.

The athlete will join a line-up including comedian Aisling Bea, funnyman Alan Carr and Hollywood star Teri Hatcher as they show off their culinary skills in aid of Stand up To Cancer.
