It appears that The Great British Bake Off’s Michael Chakraverty and Henry Bird may be dating after photos show the pair canoodling and kissing.
According to recent rumors, Bird, who competed on what was the youngest casting of the show (you might know it by the name of The Great British Baking Show on Netflix) yet, has been dating co-star Alice Fevronia. The proof: the pair were seen with each other on numerous occasions after taping for the hit baking show. However Fevronia squashed those rumors stating that they were “just friends” and that Bird was like a “brother from another mother.”
Now, a photo posted to both Chakraverty, who is a theater manager and fitness instructor, and Fevronia’s Instagram stories shows that there may be a “British BAE-ke Off” after all. The photo shows Bird cuddling Chakraverty from behind while the two make brownies together.
A second photo posted to Fevronia's Instagram last month with the caption "But how many couples can you see...?" May have hinted that the two were in a relationship since at least September.
Fans of the show took to Twitter to show their excitement.
“To celebrate being in a new relationship, Henry and Michael’s mug brownies with be served upon a duvet and paired with three fartless seasons of ‘Gilmore Girls’” one user tweeted.
Another user by the name of Stephen commented that it’s the “cutest thing I’ve ever seen.”
“Henry and Michael baking together like a young couple in love,” he posted. “@mschakraverty @henryfabird this the cutest thing I’ve ever seen my darling boys. Best thing to come out of Bake Off 2019! @BritishBakeOff #GBBO”
The series saw Chakraverty become the eighth baker to be eliminated after experiencing ‘soggy bottom’ a term coined on the show for when moisture collects at the base of cakes and pies. Although Bird made it to the quarterfinals he was eliminated during pastry week after failing to impress judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith with his towering pie.
