A woman who creates bespoke shoes that look like cakes is appearing on a BBC show after her creations appeared on RuPaul's Drag Race.

Rachel Mattia, 41, had the idea to start making the quirky footwear after nearly choking on her wedding day which resulted in her shoes being covered in cake.

Her business, House Of Mattia, is based in Taverham and she was cast for Make It At Market after a producer found her on Instagram.

The show sees Dom Chinea, from The Repair Shop, work with a team of business and craft experts to help budding entrepreneurs make a living from their crafting hobby.

Rachel said: "I don't really watch TV so I was so surprised when the producer got in touch for me to apply it.

"I just love cake, cake is everything to me. I'd probably trade my husband for a slice of cake.

"Getting to see people enjoy my creations is so amazing, I honestly love that feeling."

Rachel will appear in the last episode of season two which airs on December 15 at 4.30pm.

As well as shoes, the mum-of-two also creates dessert-themed handbags, frames and other accessories - some of which have been worn by RuPaul's Drag Race stars Trixie Mattel and Manila Luzon.

Rachel said a big reason why she got involved with the show was to inspire her daughters, Paige and Holly, to follow their dreams.

She added: "The show has been an amazing experience for me and really eye-opening.

"I wanted to show my daughters that you can follow even your silliest idea and as long as you put in the effort, you can achieve great things.

"Just because something might seem a bit odd - that doesn't mean you shouldn't go for it."
