GREAT Bri­tish Bake Off fans may have the cherry on their cake af­ter ex­it­ing con­tes­tant Se­lasi an­nounced he has plans to open a west Lon­don bak­ery.

Hearts broke across the coun­try as city baker Se­lasi Gbor­mit­tah was elim­i­nated from the Bake Off tent last week af­ter patis­serie week didn’t work in his favour.

The hugely-pop­u­lar con­tes­tant was hit with a wave of re­ac­tion from view­ers who felt he should have been al­lowed to get to the fi­nal, de­spite the judges vot­ing his cre­ation last in the tech­ni­cal chal­lenge.

He also got a frown from judge Paul Hol­ly­wood when his dish was un­der­baked in the first round.

But in an in­ter­view with The Ra­dio Times , he said: “I do love bank­ing but I’m hop­ing to open a bak­ery some­where in west Lon­don in the fore­see­able fu­ture.”

And if that wasn’t enough to ap­pease his fans, he added: “My im­me­di­ate ad­ven­ture how­ever, is a mo­tor­bike/ bak­ing tour across Europe which I’m cur­rently plan­ning.

“I hope to share all the recipes I learn in a book.”

The 2016 semi-fi­nal­ist was a favourite on the BBC show and read­ers were left as­tounded af­ter judges Mary Berry and Paul Hol­ly­wood de­cided to let him go.
