After all the tension in the tent, 42-year-old Giuseppe Dell’Anno became the first Italian to win the competition even though he came last in the Belgian bun technical and had oven issues in his showstopper. One Giuseppe was announced as the winner he said, “There are no words, I am speechless for once. All I can think of is the reaction from my mum and dad.
“The fact is that everything I have done to deserve this comes from (dad’s) heritage, it’s the best thank you note I can possibly send him.”

Judge Prue Leith was impressed with Dell’Anno’s creations throughout the series saying, “He is such a classic, beautiful baker and he represents a long tradition of classic Italian baking. He has done it brilliantly all the way through,” she said.
“I am going home to make much more Italian cakes because they really are good.”
