Josh Smalley Great British Bake Off
Josh Smalley is a contestant on the 2023 series of The Great British Bake Off, presented by Noel Fielding and Alison Hammond.
The 27 year old announced his participation in GBBO on Instagram, writing: “I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I will be donning the apron, and entering THE famous white tent for series 14 of the Great British Bake Off!
“A dream come true – such a special opportunity to be part of the Bake Off family. I can’t wait to share this experience with you all.”
Speaking about when he found out he would be entering the tent, Josh said: “I remember being in the chemistry lab last thing on a Friday when I received the call confirming my place in the famous tent. I was in complete shock and had to sit down on a stool, just lost for words.
“So many emotions going through my head; excitement of the prospect of baking in the tent, buzzing as I couldn’t wait to tell my brother and parents the news, nervous that I was going to be baking for Paul and Prue, and a sense of accomplishment that I had managed to make it through and do my Nan proud – as she was a big inspiration for entering again this year.
“She passed away in June 2021 and I said I would try and enter the Bake Off again for her.”
