Steve is my first #GBBO crush since John Whaite— Charlie Condou (@Charliecondou) August 29, 2017
I see there's already a queue forming for Steven #GBBO— Gary Patrick Brown (@gpb1979) August 29, 2017
Meanwhile, 19-year-old Liam also caught the eye of viewers. Known among his friends as 'Cake Boy', the drama student from Hackney in north London discovered his passion for baking four years ago and is keen to help make baking more acceptable among his peers. He may have made it all the way to Bake Off, but Liam hasn’t had the best luck in other baking competitions. In 2015, he was beaten into second place in the ‘Great Rainbow Bake-off’ competition at his school to commemorate LGBT Pride month. His double chocolate cake in that competition was bested by a pink triangle cake which read ‘Lesbians Do Exist’.
After that bread cake, Paul looked like he was ready to bypass the handshake and go straight to giving Steven a lovely, brief wank. #GBBO— Daniel J. Layton (@DanielJLayton) August 29, 2017
Am actually enjoying the new #GBBO and we love Liam ( what's not to love about a young lad from Hackney?)— Rosebea Hats (@RoseBeaHats) August 29, 2017
Audiences were also enraptured by 29-year-old Scotsman Tom, an architect who often bakes for his friends, family, and partner David. Yep, you heard that right. Partner. We're as gutted as the rest of you.
I am a reasonable person but if Liam goes home I WILL set the TV on fire #GBBO— hannah 🌈 (@hmbenzies) August 29, 2017
