Great British Bake Off's David Atherton has made a cheeky confession about a rude outfit he tried to wear on the hit show.

David, who won the 2019 series, took to Twitter to make the confession, sharing a photo in the Bake Off tent wearing a badge that read: “I Love Anal.”

The star captioned the snap: “Just remembering the time I tried to get away with wearing this badge on Bake Off. I got it into the tent, but then it was spotted.”

Fans found David’s confession hilarious, with the tweet gaining thousands of retweets and likes since it was posted on Wednesday evening.

David reigned supreme in the 2019 series, beating Alice Fevronia and Steph Blackwell to the top spot after wowing judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood with his showstopper picnic basket.

The star, who worked as an International Health Advisor before appearing on the show, has since gone on to release cookbook Good To Eat by David Atherton.

Had David’s cheeky badge made it onto the show, it would most likely have featured in the most notorious moments – which to date include Paul Hollywood dunking his Jaffa Cake into his tea, shop bought fondant and the time Prue Leith accidentally revealed the winner ahead of the final being aired.

Perhaps the most memorable moment from the series came in series five, with Baked Alaska-gate in series five.

Iain Watters famously binned his Baked Alaska after a mishap.

He dramatically stormed out of the Bake Off tent, after fellow baker Diana Beard removed his Baked Alaska from the freezer, to make room for her own.


He later presented the unimpressed judges with the bin, leaving mild-mannered Mary visibly shocked.

A whopping 800 people complained, furious viewers launched a #justiceforiain campaign, and Diana later quit, blaming illness, amid a torrent of online abuse.

Iain later commented: "I feel bad for Diana because she's had quite a mauling on Twitter and I don't like all the nasty comments that have been directed towards her. I think it's a bit unfair, and I do think they could have edited the episode a bit better."
