Rumours started swirling after the GBBO winner was snapped with what appeared to be a sparkler on her ring finger, but she's now revealed the truth...
It’s been a blimmin’ amazing week for Candice Brown.
The 31-year-old won The Great British Bake Off on Wednesday night, fending off competition from fellow finalists Andrew Smyth and Jane Beedle.
The PE teacher was incredibly emotional to hear judges Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry call her name, telling viewers: ‘This means more to me than anyone will realise.
‘I have low self-belief, even though my friends and family constantly build my confidence up. So it was a big moment in my life, probably the biggest so far.
‘I felt that everything happens for a reason, and I did it, and that makes me smile so much. In fact, I can’t stop smiling.’
She also Tweeted: ‘I am grateful thankful and honoured! What a crazy few months! You will never know what’s this means to me! 12bakers now friends #GBBO ❤️.’
But that wasn’t the only thing that eagle-eyed fans thought Candice may have been celebrating.
She’s been happily dating boyfriend Liam Macaulay for four years (y’know, the one who was adorably crying at the end of Bake Off), and they’ve moved in together.
But what if Liam’s popped the question… and Candice hasn’t told us?

Engagement rumours first began swirling after Candice shared an Instagram snap of herself cuddling a friend’s baby earlier this week.
At first glance, it seemed totally innocent. But when you looked a little closer at her left hand – and that finger – you could spot what appeared to be a rather large diamond. Ooh.
Fans couldn’t help getting excited, with one comment reading: ‘Is that a sparkler on your finger @cj.brownie?.’
But before you get your wedding hats ready, we’d better break the news that Candice has now poo-pooed the speculation.
A representative tells OK!: ‘Just to confirm, Candice is not engaged.’
Boooo. Well, whenever she does get hitched, she’s going to make one beautiful bride. And just imagine the cake…
