What has Selasi been up to since Bake Off?

Selasi put on a fundraising dinner in July for the survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire, a tragedy which was close to his heart as a west Londoner.

In October 2017, Selasi realised his dream and opened a bakery (kind of). He launched a Deliveroo pop-up selling floral cupcakes.

And then in November of this year, Selasi held minion baking classes in London to promote the DVD release of Despicable Me 3. It was based around the minions' favourite snack – bananas, obviously – and going by the reports, Selasi was as chill as ever.

He also met up with a fan favourite from the last series, Liam Charles, which sent Twitter into disarray.

Selasi has high hopes for the future, in that he wants to bake Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding cake for them.

And apart from that, he’s just been doing allorra lorra Christmas baking…


The Great Christmas Bake Off will air on Monday 25th December at 7.40pm and Monday 1st January at 7.40pm – both on Channel 4
