He may not have made it to the fi­nal, but it looks like Liam Charles could be the real win­ner of Bake Off after be­ing snapped up by ‘su­per agent’ Vivienne Clore.

The agent – who also has Bake Off co-host Sandi Toksvig and spin-off show pre­sen­ter Jo Brand on her books – has signed the 20-year-old after he im­pressed her – and mil­lions of view­ers.

‘Vivienne is one of the best in the business and has close links to Bake Off through Sandi and Jo,’ re­vealed a source. ‘She is highly rated, not least as she se­cures great deals for her ta­lent and care­fully man­ages long, highly successful ca­reers.

‘Per­son­al­ity-wise, Liam was the stand­out star and the sky’s the limit.’

Another source added,

‘It’s early days but very ex­cit­ing.’

Lovely Liam could po­ten­tially be in line for TV pre­sent­ing and cook­ery book deals.

Fans were out­raged when the drama stu­dent was kicked out of the com­pe­ti­tion dur­ing the quar­ter-fi­nals – re­duc­ing both him­self and pre­sen­ter Sandi to tears.

How­ever, his cheer­ful per­son­al­ity shone through as he said, ‘I’m go­ing to look back – prob­a­bly to­mor­row morn­ing and think, “I smashed it.”’

The bud­ding baker also joked, ‘I’m com­ing for Paul Hol­ly­wood’s job in 10 years’ time.’
