Great British Bake Offstar Selasi Gbormittah left millions of viewers broken-hearted when he was eliminated from this year's competition, but on Friday the heartthrob made a triumphant return to television. Fans descended into a social media frenzy when the London-based baker appeared on ITV's This Morning with hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford.
Selasi once again put his skills to the test, this time creating a mouthwatering Christmas rum cake while discussing his time on the show, and his now-famous laidback approach. "I'm chilled all the time and it helps with life I think," he admitted.

Amidst fans' messages of praise, there was one particularly touching message for the baker, from fellow former contestant Jane Beedle. After a photo of Selasi's final rum cake was posted on social media, the GBBO finalist was quick to praise him for his latest achievement. "@selasigb @thismorning cake looks fab Selasi," she wrote, alongside an emoji of a happy face with heart-shaped eyes.
Speaking about the final, Selasi admitted that he felt he "dropped the ball" but that finalists Candice Brown, Andrew Smyth and Jane, all "deserved" to have made it that far.
"The finalists deserved to be there, I dropped the ball, I had a great time," he explained, before celebrating Candice's eventual win. "She's a deserving winner, she's always gone above and beyond, she absolutely killed it."
