Ade Edmondson was crowned star baker in Sport Relief Bake Off
Ade Edmondson was crowned Star Baker in the final heat of 'The Great Sport Relief Bake Off' last night (24.02.16).
The comedian beat 'Pop Idol' champion Will Young, comedian Morgana Robinson and 'Gavin and Stacey' actress Alison Steadman to the prestigious accolade as he created a Sir Cliff Richard cubist masterpiece out of 60 cupcakes, a salmon roulade and an open-top pie in the charity celebrity cooking show, which is hosted by Sarah Milligan.
Speaking of his win, he said as he clutched his bouquet of flowers: "I am very proud. I've always watched since the first series and it was a thrill to be in the tent... I'm chuffed."
The 59-year-old actor was neck and neck with Morgana, until he wowed judges Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry with the edible recreation of his greatest achievement made up of 60 cupcakes - his 1986 No. 1 hit single recorded with the 'Mistletoe and Wine' hitmaker for Comic Relief.
Paul said of the creative masterpiece: "The whole idea is ingenious. I think you should be very, very, proud of yourself. I haven't seen anything like that on the Bake Off before."
Ade's consistency throughout the episode, alongside his success in the signature challenge with a blueberry flavoured sea, ornately decorated with a boat containing a bear-like tiger to resemble the blockbuster 'Life of Pi', ensured he gained the title and was crowned the winner.
However, not everyone managed to dazzle the professionals as the 'Evergreen' singer suffered a blow with his bizarre tomato soup-flavoured cupcakes.
