Samantha Cameron Wins 'Great Sport Relief Bake Off': 'It's Nice Getting Flowers For Something I Did On My Own'

Samantha Cameron has revealed that her victory in the celebrity edition of ‘The Great British Bake Off’ was all the more sweet, because she was recognised for something other than being the Prime Minister's wife.


She was crowned Star Baker after her creations won over judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood in the Sport Relief special of the BBC One show, which aired on Wednesday (27 January) night.

"I am genuinely really pleased," she said.

"I’m normally being given flowers for being David’s wife, so it’s really nice being given flowers for, you know, doing something that I’ve done on my own."

Samantha had impressed after cooking up crab and shrimp canapes and a surfing-themed cake, inspired by holidays in Cornwall with her husband.

During the show, she also revealed that David is an "enthusiastic" cook, but rubbish at tidying up.

Judge Paul said of her bakes: "The showstopper – Sam knocked everyone out of the park.

"That was fantastic, well thought out, well executed and tastes actually as good as it looks."

Samantha had been up against comedian Jason Manford, former goalkeeper David James and ‘EastEnders’ actress Maddy Hill in the first show of the charity series.

Other names who will be taking part in the coming weeks include singer Will Young, Spice Girl Geri Halliwell, Girls Aloud’s Kimberley Walsh and newscaster John Simpson.

‘The Great Sport Relief Bake Off’ continues next Wednesday at 8.30pm on BBC One.
