The newly-crowned ‘Bake Off’ champ enjoyed her evening out at the Pride Of Britain Awards, and stopped off to have a quick chat with The Huffington Post UK ahead of the bash.
And while she may be a novice at all things showbiz, Candice did reveal that a certain Nadiya Hussain has been on hand to offer some advice.
“We’ve swapped messages and she wished me luck,” she told us. “We’re part of a very exclusive family and I’m very honored to be part of it.”
Candice’s ‘Bake Off’ win was watched by a huge 14.8 million people, but her time in the spotlight did come with some downsides.
When the show, which is filmed months in advance, was aired, Candice was on the receiving end of a number of nasty tweets, which she later addressed on ‘Loose Women’.
“It’s not in my nature to be mean, I’m not that sort of person at all,” she said. “So I thought… actually, if I just answer back in a way ‘well okay, I hope you have a lovely day today’ and ‘you don’t spell my surname like that, it’s spelled this way’ and actually I found that helped me.”
