But the biggest challenge of all was the task to create their biggest pet peeve in 3D cake form. I really wanted Daisy Ridley to win here. Not just because I fancy her rotten, but I loved her idea of a toilet cake inspired by her dislike of her partner leaving the toilet seat up when flushing. It looked fantastically quirky and Daisy resisted the temptation to put a poo in the toilet. Her design stole the show.
I was disappointed Alexandra won. I never really liked her, even on ‘X-Factor’ and her idea was just weird. It was a clean sheets cake for her footballer boyfriend whose muddy football boots apparently make a mess on the bed. She made a little dog too, but it looked more like a big, fat bottom peeking out from beneath the covers. She shouldn’t have won. Daisy should’ve won - the toilet cake was ingenious.
Then there was the charity cancer story. It was from a young woman called Ella who got cancer at 14 years old. It was very moving and will bring tears to the eyes. It’s really good to hear she’s recovered now and now works as a physiotherapist.
‘Bake-off’ is perfect reality show therapy. It lifts the spirit, is light-hearted and sentimental, but has a lot of emotional filling on the inside - very much like a very good and tasty cake. Exactly the kind of escapism we need in Covid times.
'The Great Celebrity Bake-off for SU2C' is on All4 now.
