Steven Carter-Bailey was a finalist on GBBO in 2017 (his series is still on All4, if you haven’t seen it). He won three star bakers and several of those ever-elusive Hollywood Handshakes during his time on the show. He also won the New Year’s Day Bake Off this year and even got a Hollywood hug!!! Steven has worked as a special reporter for ITV news, appeared on the Last Leg on Channel 4 and is currently very busy appearing at food festivals all around Britain. I am a huge Great British Bake Off fan and I’m obsessed with his Instagram (photos of incredible cake and a cute British bulldog is= Instagram gold) so it was great to be able to meet and chat with him.   Steven was incredibly open and honest and this was at times a very emotional interview. We chatted about; the elaborate lies he had to tell to keep his participation on GBBO a secret.  feeling different to his peers whilst growing up. what it was like growing up gay and Mormon. experiencing homophobia from teachers.  coming out to his sister and friends. why his grandmother was the first person he told.  how his mother reacted when he came out to her.  how he has struggled with his weight over the years. experiencing homophobia as an adult. and his enduring crush on a certain Mr William Young.   Links stevencarterbailey.co.uk Steven on Instagram  - spongecakesquaretin Steven on twitter - spongecakesqtin To watch Steven on the Great British Bake Off- channel4.com Follow I’m Coming Out The Podcast on Twitter and Instagram - @imcomingoutpod
