Who is Liam Charles?
Hackney-born Liam, 23, studied Drama and Theatre Arts at Goldsmiths where he was nicknamed “Cake Boy” among his uni friends because of his love of baking.
He aimed to take the coveted Bake Off title despite not being the best in his school’s LGBT baking competition.
For the contest, he created a double chocolate cake with chocolate shards and cream to celebrate Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender history month.
The student eventually lost to a pink triangle cake symbolising the symbol worn by persecuted gay men and lesbian women in Nazi concentration camps.
