Faldo was born in London, and grew up in Suffolk. She studied psychology at the University of Manchester and Toulouse.[1] She joined the Royal Artillery and has served in Afghanistan. After leaving the Army, she worked as a personal trainer, taught military boot camps, and was training to be a stuntwoman when she was convinced by her chef boyfriend to apply for The Great British Bake Off.[2]

Faldo won the competition, but her victory was not a surprise one, as twelve hours before the final episode, judge Prue Leith accidentally tweeted the results.[3][4]
