Last year's finale saw Giuseppe, Scarlett and Chigs compete to win the popular baking competition, but it was Italian-born baker Giuseppe who impressed the judges the most and was crowned the 2021 winner. 

He said of his win: "There are no words, I am speechless for once. All I can think of is the reaction from my mum and dad. The fact is that everything I have done to deserve this comes from his heritage, it's the best thank-you note I can possibly send him."
