Meet Man Yee Woo, one of the contestants in the BBC’s Great British Sewing Bee‘s eighth season. Twelve new contenders will demonstrate their knitting and garment-making abilities.
The BBC’s The Great British Sewing Bee has returned for its eighth season. The show returned to BBC One on April 27th, with 12 ambitious sewers competing for the crown. The show has undergone a few changes, including Sara Pascoe as the new host, who greeted the contenders battling for the championship. Joe Lycett, a comedian, had previously presented the show.
Despite a few modifications, the two judges, Patrick Grant and Esme Young have returned to assess the work of the competitors. A transformation challenge and the final Made to Measure test, in which they must create an entire outfit, are among the activities that will determine the winner.

Man Yee Woo On The Great British Sewing Bee
According to Reality Titbit, “Originally from Hong Kong, Man Yee is a houseplant collector who moved to Portsmouth as a child. When the sewer and her friends wanted to dress up as Japanese anime characters for Comic-Con, she asked her aunt to teach her. Day by day, Man Yee works as an actuary in London, where she lives with her boyfriend”.
On 1 September 2020, Man Yee shared on her Instagram that she has been since she was 12/13 years old. She also used to put sewing tutorials on her YouTube.
Marni Miller, a veterinarian, Annie from Surrey, Cristian from London, Brogan from Derbyshire, Mitch Cumbria, Steve from Newcastle, Debra, 50, Richy from Shropshire, Gill, who has only been sewing for three years, Chichi from Somerset, and Angela from Lancashire are among the other contestants.
The Pattern Challenge began the show, which challenged the sewers to make a tiny skirt with two patch pockets and piping around the edge. They had to make the skirt out of Yorkshire wool from the haberdashery, which was piled high, and they had to make their own piping or buy it ready-made.
The contestants were given 2 hours and 45 minutes to complete their projects, and Esme warned: “The pockets will need to be symmetrical because if they’re not, we’ll notice.”
Angela took first place in the first challenge, followed by Marni in second and Brogan in third. The second obstacle was the Transformation Challenge, which required them to be imaginative and inventive. They were won over by Marnie’s ’80s style shirt.
After placing 1st, Marnie said: “I am surprised, I am a child of the ’80s! Sometimes I feel like I’m not inventive but I’ve done OK so far.”
Mitch was the first competitor to be eliminated in the first episode.
