With Channel 4’s first ever Great British Bake Off champion set to be crowned tomorrow, last year’s winner has some special news of her own.
Yes, Candice Brown has revealed that she is now engaged to Liam Macaulay, a year on from her Bake Off success.
The baking-queen shared the news in an interview with Hello! Magazine. Candice gushed about how lucky she felt and what an amazing year she had enjoyed following her stint in the Bake Off tent.
She said, “I get emotional. Because it’s been such an amazing year. I feel very lucky. I’ve had such incredible opportunities – GBBO opened so many doors – and to top it off he puts a ring on it.”
Candice and Liam have been dating since 2012. There was speculation of an engagement late last year but Candice described how Liam carefully planned the engagement so that it had real meaning.
Liam revealed, “So I proposed in a car park. But it really meant something to us. Candice just cried for five minutes before she could say, “Yes!”
The car park was the spot where Liam and Candice had their first date. Candice added, “He reached into the glove compartment, got out the ring, got down on one knee and said, “I love you, you are my world. Will you marry me?”
Candice has always been very open about her love for Liam. Just last month she posted this loving message on her Instagram page.
Candice wrote, “This dude has picked me up, dusted me down, made me smile, made me laugh, told me I’m good enough when I said I wasn’t, stood by me, sang Tina turner, wiped away tears, holds my hand and tells me when my cake isn’t quite perfect. He is my one and only 💙”.
So now that he has popped the question, all that is left is for the couple to plan the big day!
