Bake Off's Crystelle on 'elephant in the room' after making show history for wrong reason

After host Noel Fielding announced Giuseppe as the winner, the Italian baker was overcome with emotion.

He said: “All I can think of is the reaction I’m going to get from my mum and dad.

“The fact that everything I have done to deserve this comes from his heritage… I think it’s going to be the best thank you note I could possibly send him.”

Many Bake Off fans were delighted with Giuseppe’s win. Ella said: “Rooted for Giuseppe since the first episode! So glad he won.”

Steve Tough added: “After the injustice of Jürgen going home last week, so glad Giuseppe won. Absolutely deserved it!”

And Lauren remarked: “I’m so glad Giuseppe won #bakeoff.”
