That same week, we also discovered that Rahul bakes to make friends, and what an unforgettable moment it was as he walked into Rotherham Leisure Centre to deliver a cake to the staff/his newest friends.
But Rahul reached peak Rahul in the final, when we were shown a photograph of him aged nine standing outside the Taj Mahal dressed in the killer combo of high-waisted brown cords and and socks and sandals.
And his relationship with his best pals David and Liz was just too much to handle.
Rahul arrived in England on his own eight years ago. He had no family or friends in the country. David and Liz took him under their wing. The kindness of strangers can go a long way to making a huge difference. #GBBOFinalpic.twitter.com/S3VbbBpw2W
