‘They’re the first people I talk to!’ Great British Bake Off champion Giuseppe Dell’Anno reveals the bakers have their own WhatsApp Group… but admits he kept his win a secret for MONTHS










Great British Bake Off winner Giuseppe Dell’Anno joined Lorraine Kelly to talk about his triumph on the Channel 4 baking show and revealed the bakers have their own WhatsApp Group.

‘The filming ended in early July, so it was a few months it had to be kept secret,’ he told Lorraine.

‘Especially [from] my kids – the whole village would have known in half an hour.’

Lorraine admitted she’d love to see a show with Giuseppe and fellow Bake Off contestant Jurgen teaming up together.

To her delight, Giuseppe revealed that the other bakers on the show have all kept in touch since filming ended.

‘We’ve got a WhatsApp group and they’re the first people I speak to in the morning and the last people I speak to in the evening. I’m hoping it’s going to last because I love all of them.’

He also spoke about the reports that he had failed to switch his oven on in the final.

‘I need to straighten that out. I didn’t forget. I switched it on, but it’s one of those appliances that are cleverer than you, and they switch off if you don’t slam the door shut.’

While on the show, Giuseppe spoke a great deal about his chef father, and at the end of the show it was mentioned that the pair were thinking of writing a book together.

Giuseppe said: ‘I’d love that. I’ve got all his notes – just looking at them is heartwarming, and I wanted to tidy them up and write them up for the kids, but then I thought, there might be a bigger audience than that for this. People told me to write it down and pass it on.’

Speaking about baking with his kids, he said: ‘They’re not at that age where they hate everything their parents do just yet, so I can keep them busy for about 20 minutes or half an hour to get their hands dirty and they love it. It’s like playing with Play-Doh isn’t it?’

The amateur baker opted for a giant tear-and-share brioche mushroom, with mango and passion fruit ‘drink me’ panna cottas, heart-shaped orange and fig muffins, and an asparagus and pea filled choux caterpillar. 

The final attracted an average audience of 6.9 million viewers, Channel 4 said, a drop of 2.3 million from last year.
