Ahh… The Great British Baking Show. That good-spirited antidote to life’s overwhelming complexities, a place where competition is all in good fun and where individualism doesn’t clash with community. And such good lighting! What a dream.
And now fans of the show have found another reason to get all warm and fuzzy — two of season seven’s contestants, Michael Chakraverty and Henry Bird, are maybe probably an off-screen item.
Photos of the couple looking all couple-y have made the rounds online, and the reaction has been as enthusiastic as Mary Berry when she tastes the perfect sticky toffee pudding.
A fellow season seven baker, Alice Fevronia, posted a couple of photos of Chakraverty and Bird that certainly point towards romance.
One appeared on her Instagram story:

And a second on her feed:
Folks are very happy to live vicariously through the budding romance. Almost too happy.
Here’s what they’re saying:

I try not to put too much stake into queer celeb dating rumors but my heart might shatter if it turns out Michael and Henry from this season of Bake Off aren't dating
