After the winner was announced at a celebration attended by the family and friends of the three finalists, as well as the other nine bakers knocked out in previous rounds, Brown admitted: “When they said my name that means more to me than anyone will ever realise.

“I have low self-belief, even though my friends and family build my confidence up. It was a big moment in my life, probably the biggest so far.”
