Bake Off: Meet David Atherton's partner Nik - fans smitten with the winner's boyfriend!

The final of The Great British Bake Off descended on our screens on Tuesday, October 29th after weeks of soggy bottoms, star bakes and a whole load of stressed-out contestants.

Three contestants made it to the final, David Atherton, Alice Fevronia and Steph Blackwell. Steph and Alice had held the title of star baker four times and two times, respectively. But it was underdog David, who had never won star baker, who took home the crown!

However, viewers were less focussed on David’s win and were more focussed on his adorable relationship with partner Nik.

So, who is David’s boyfriend, Nik? Here’s what we found out about the couple!
