“Former Great British Bake Off finalist Luis Troyano, who starred in series five of the show in 2014, has died from oesophageal cancer at the age of 48.
“Sadly, my lovely client lost his brave fight against oesophageal cancer last week,” tweeted his agent Anne Kibel.
“A fantastic man with a love of baking that saw him get to the finals of GBBO, write a wonderful book, Bake It Great, and do so much more,” she added.
After the show, Troyano said Bake Off had “totally changed my life”.
“As well as being given the opportunity to write a book, I now also bake for a living, which is simply amazing. As far as baking goes, I can certainly bake a lot faster now than before the GBBO,” he told Food and Drinks Guide.
Following his stint on Bake Off, Troyano made appearances on BBC Good Food and BBC Breakfast shows. He released a book called Bake it Great in 2015.” – BBC News
