SPOILER ALERT! If you don't want to know who won The Great British Bake Off last night, get the hell out of here.
If you watched last night’s Great British Bake Off final, you’re probably still crying every time you think about the contestants’ family videos. Especially Giuseppe’s – sorry, I must have icing sugar in my eye, because I appear to be off again…
Speaking of Giuseppe, that Italian stallion was crowned the winner of Bake Off 2021, and we think he was a worthy winner. Yes, Crystelle was great, but that raw focaccia was a disgrace. And we love Chigs more than life itself, but we really so think Giuseppe deserved that glass cake stand in the end.
And actually, if this Twitter theory is anything to go by, we should have known the engineer from Milan was going to win from day one.
A lot of people on social media are pointing out that not only did Italy win the Euros back in June, but the country also triumphed in the Eurovision Song contest when Italian rock band Måneskin received the most votes. So, it’s no great surprise that an Italian kicked our arses once again in The Great British Bake Off.
So the Italians have won:
• Olympic Men’s 100m dash
• Olympic 4x100 Men’s 100m dash
• Great British Bake Off
2021 really belongs to Italy.

Italy takes the triple with the euros, Eurovision and bake off in the same year. Next stop, world domination.

What a year it’s been for Italy, Eurovision winners, Euro winners, now adding bake off to the honours board

Btw, what a year to Italy. Eurovision, the Euros and now Bake Off!

Of course... European Cup, Eurovision and GBBO the triple crown for Italy

(BTW, Giuseppe very much just came over to the UK to win Bake Off, then he was on the first flight back to Italy. Natch.)

And as if those three wins weren’t enough, Italy also got the gold medals in the Olympic men’s 100m and the 4x 100 men’s 100m races.
Molto bene, Italy. Molto bene.
