Great British Bake Off Star Candice Brown Reveals Exciting Engagement News

by rima@hitched

Last year’s Great British Bake Off winner Candice Brown has announced her engagement to boyfriend Liam Macaulay.

Speaking to HELLO! Magazine, Candice spoke about how much her life has changed in the last year.

“I get emotional because it’s been such an amazing year. I feel very lucky. I’ve had such incredible opportunities – Bake Off opened so many doors – and to top it all off he puts a ring on it.”

Opening up about boyfriend Liam putting a ring on it, she revealed that he proposed with a gorgeous vintage engagement ring, and it really is a beauty!

The proposal took place in the Black Horse restaurant in Bedfordshire where Candice and Liam had their first date.

“As we got there I was saying, ‘Remember our first date?’ Liam hadn’t been driving for very long at the time and wasn’t the best at parking so got all flustered” Candice said.

She continued to notice similarities between this date and the first time they’d visited the restaurant.

“He pulled into the exact same parking spot as that first night and I was laughing about it. Then he ran round and opened my door like he did on that first night.

“He reached into the glove compartment, got out the ring, got down on one knee and said, ‘I love you, you are my world. Will you marry me?’”

Liam then explained that it took Candice about five minutes before she was able to say yes because she was crying too much – happy tears of course!

When asked who will make the cut and get an invite to the wedding, Candice said she plans on inviting all 11 of her fellow cooking contestants, saying they became really good friends and speak nearly every day – even one year on from the competition.

Candice and Liam have been together since 2012, and speculation about the pair getting engaged has mounted over the past year - particularly when she was spotted wearing a large diamond ring at the National Television Awards.

However, the star was quick to shrug off the rumours during an appearance on Loose Women, telling the panel: “I know [I panicked everyone with the ring] but I just like wearing jewellery. Poor boy – he's like, 'Oh god, the pressure', and I'm like, 'Don't you dare pressure-ask me to marry you!'”
