GBBO’s Selasi Just Broke *Everyone’s* Hearts With This News

The 30-year-old City guy has revealed he has a GIRLFRIEND. And the nation's been sobbing for a good 12 hours or so...

It’s official! We have a new national heartthrob, and his name is… Selasi.

Yep. The Great British Bake Off star has won viewers over with his cool attitude, expert baking and, of course, that cheeky grin.

But the 30-year-old ended up leaving fans completely devastated on last night’s show, when he revealed that he actually has a girlfriend. *Sob*.

He broke the news by telling judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood that he was using a recipe from his ‘girlfriend’s mum’ during the Yorkshire pudding challenge.

And of course, Twitter immediately erupted.

Messages included: ‘That sinking feeling when Selasi says “my girlfriend” #GBBO,’ ‘Selasi said “girlfriend” and I swear I heard Britain’s heart shatter. #GBBO,’ and: ‘Just heard the awful news Selasi has a girlfriend (of course he does) and i’m crushed.’

After hearing this development, we decided to do a bit of digging. And we hate to break it to you, but the rumours are true.

On the BBC’s Great British Bake Off page, his profile reads: ‘Originally from Ghana, Selasi moved to the UK with his family 15 years ago and now lives with his girlfriend in London where he works as a Client Service Associate in a Financial Institution.’

Oh. And to make us feel even more gutted about his lack of availability, the bio also explains just how much of an angel he is.

It continues: ‘Besides his obvious passion for baking, Selasi enjoys fundraising for several charities.

‘He has recently raised money by running a 10k, half marathon and trekking through Malawi and continues to support two new charities each year through various activities and challenges.’

Selasi, your girlfriend is one lucky, lucky lady…
