Finalist Andrew’s parents on keeping the result under wraps.

It was the moment watched by millions - as the winner of the Great British Bakeoff was revealed. Candice Brown may have won, but Andrew Smyth hardly let himself down. The Northern Ireland man was a worthy runner up and even won the technical challenge.

His mother, Kay, said: “We are absolutely delighted, we had a fantastic day and watched the final together with the other two finalists. They are such a nice bunch of people.”

It was the seventh series of Bake Off, which will return at the end of the year for a Christmas special.

Nigel, his father said: “It’s a very hard secret to keep, but we are the proudest of parents,” with Kay adding, “we have known since June, it turns out we are very good add keeping secrets!”
