WIGAN’S favourite baker is passing on his expertise to others by hosting his own masterclasses.

John Whaite, who won The Great British Bake-Off last year, has set up his own cookery sessions, priced at £90.

The multi-bake day focuses on macaroons, madeleines, rough puff pastry palmiers and brownies. His classes are so popular, many have sold out. Visit for more information.

The 23-year-old was also cooking up a storm on This Morning yesterday, as he experimented with passion fruit.

The former Wrightington resident appeared as bright as a button, despite tweeting several hours later: “Brilliant night at @AttitudeMag party last night. Though that naughty free bar got the better of me!”
