Chigs loved filming the show – and said staying in the bubble throughout was like being on holiday.

But he admitted: “The fact that I was the least experienced baker played on my mind a lot during this time.

Crystelle

THE 26-year-old relationships manager from London says she was “desperate” to show off her heritage through her bakes.

And her authentic Portuguese-Goan pastry won her a Hollywood handshake.

She said: “It meant so much because it was such a sentimental bake for my family and me.

...I didn’t pack nearly enough clothes – I ended up wearing some of the crew’s clothes towards the end.”

Giuseppe

THE Italian engineer, 45, who lives in Bristol, got his passion for baking from his dad – who would make a cake every Sunday.

And Giuseppe has been a fan favourite from the off.

He said of making the final: “I felt sheer shock, and you can probably see it from my reaction to Jurgen’s elimination last week.

“I was not expecting him to go, I had him down as a guaranteed finalist from day one.”

Giuseppe added: “I was convinced that I was going to go after my even wonkier-than-normal leaning tower of Pisa.”
