After winning the famous baking series, Joanne went on to start her own cookery school in her own home in Essex. She faced a lot of media backlash during her time on Bake Off due to her husband serving a prison sentence for fraud while she was competing.
But she survived the British tabloids and has succeeded so far with her company, as well as publishing two books: A Passion for Baking (2013) and Home Baking (2014). She continues to create and publish recipes on her blog, too!
Aside from baking, the mom of three has been focusing more on what's important in her life: her ever-growing family. She has many grandkids, nephews and nieces that she always posts about and even travels with! Traveling with her family, and especially husband, seems to be one of her biggest hobbies!
Here's Jo pictured with her husband, Richard, during a trip in South Africa:

Happy Mother's Day All. Hope you're all having a wonderful day. We went on a hippo safari and then onto a cultural village tour and then on to see the big cats ok so maybe not such a big cat (swipe across to the last pic) But tomorrow we're off to @lukimbisafarilodge at Kruger National Park so hopefully may see some there x Ps pic number 3 is hippo teeth who knew ♀️
And of course, her unconditional love for family goes towards her two adorable little Frenchies!
She once told the Daily Post, "The only thing about being the Bake Off winner is that you never get away with going anywhere without cake." Based off the looks of her amazing pastries, we'd imagine so!
