NADIYA Hussain is known for serving up delicious dishes, but Bake Off viewers were quick to notice her dishy husband Abdal.

Here's what you need to know about Abdal who's wife is back on our screens TONIGHT with her new BBC2 series Time to Eat…

Who is Nadiya Hussain's husband Abdal?

Abdal is the husband of cook and Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain.

At the time of the show he was a technical manager at a Computer Sciences Corporation based in Leeds.

He encouraged her to apply to the show and was quickly deemed a "hunk" by Bake Off viewers. 

Nadiya has described her husband as a huge support.

At the time of the show she said: “He’s definitely been my biggest support throughout all of this, and he’s had to take on a very different role at home.

“He irons clothes now, feeds the kids and does the dishes. No relationship is 50/50, as someone always gives a little bit more.

“At the moment he’s the one giving a lot more.”

When did he marry the Bake Off winner

Abdal married Nadiya in 2004 when she was just 19-years-old.

The Great British Bake Off star and her hubby had an arranged marriage and had only met once before they married.

Speaking on Loose Women, the 34-year-old revealed what she looked out for in him when they first met.

She said: ""I didn’t see him very well but my sisters did and they went downstairs and said ‘oh my god he’s so good-looking’

Before adding: "But he’s got an enormous butt.

"So now, when I met him for the first time, the first thing I wanted to look at was his butt.

"So I was like I’ve got to check if this a*** is as huge as I think it is."

Nadiya told The Sun: "We're married Islamically but we've never done the proper vows here."

And revealed plans to renew their vows and register their marriage legally.

How many children do they have?

The couple have three children – two sons and a daughter.

They are 12-year-old Musa, 11-year-old Dawyd and eight-year-old Maryam.

What time is Nadiya’s Time to Eat on BBC Two?

Nadiya's Time to Eat is a new BBC Two cookery show every Monday at 8pm.

The show launches TONIGHT (Monday 15 July) and each episode will last half an hour each.

The six-part series is hosted by 2015 Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain. 

Here's what Nadiya told What's On TV about a desire for an easy, fuss-free meal as the inspiration behind the show: "Prepared meals can ease some of the worry of having to cook fresh every day.

"I believe if we plan ahead, having meals ready in the freezer can be as convenient as takeaway.

"I always like to think of one meal as two. During the time you take to cook one meal you could have also made another to stick in your freezer.

"It’s fresh, you know what you’ve put in it, and all it needs is warming up.

"Not that I’m saying we shouldn’t treat ourselves to a takeaway occasionally.

"I love putting my feet up and not worrying about cooking!"
