Did you spot Bake Off’s Selasi during the X Factor final?

An extra slice of the semi-finalist


During the advert breaks on Sunday’s X Factor final clash between Matt Terry and Saara Aalto, you may well have been browsing Twitter or making a cuppa rather than keeping an eye on the screen – but if so, you missed out on a surprise cameo from the star of a very different TV talent show.


Behold, the return of The Great British Bake Off’s Selasi Gbormittah!

The banker-turned-TV heartthrob appeared (in the above meat feast pizza slice form) during one of the TalkTalk FX Stars adverts that bookend each part of The X Factor, singing along to Shakin’ Steven’s festive classic Merry Christmas Everyone and somehow looking as cool as ever while doing it.

You can watch his performance here, and for many it was the highlight of the final.

Shockingly, this isn’t actually the first time the clip has appeared – according to Selasi himself, below, it turned up in the December 3rd episode earlier this month – but it was still great to see the fan-favourite baker back in some food-related action.


Here’s to many more tasty TV appearances for Selasi in the years to come.
