Great British Bake Off 2020 star Dave takes 'step back from baking' after 'tough' time

Dave Friday, 30, recently welcomed baby son Ronnie with partner Stacey and has been finding it “tough” to spend time in the kitchen. The Great British Bake Off 2020 contestant “needed” to be around for his family, and therefore had to take a brief pause from baking.

On trying to balance baking and fatherhood, he said: “It has been tough trying to find the time – Stacey and Ronnie went through a lot at the beginning, so I needed to be around for them.

“I also really enjoy my dad duties at home, so I did take a step back from baking.

“When I do bake, I’ve been trying to keep it simple and not too challenging or time-consuming.

“I’m really looking forward to baking with Ronnie and I hope he loves it as much as I do,“ he added.

Speaking on his strengths, Dave said on the show: “My strengths are the ability to learn from mistakes, take criticism and use it to improve.
