The Great British Bake Off Finalists Gain Four Stone During Filming

Did you have a hard time watching BBC 2's Great British Bake Off without reaching for a cookie or cake? Spare a thought for the finalist who gained four stone between them while taste testing their French fancies and show-stopping cakes. Speaking to BBC Breakfast, John Whaite, the 23-year-old winner, said, "I put on a stone-and-a-half. I had to exercise it off. If you are going to indulge you have to make sure you work it off."

Other than causing the finalists to balloon and a nationwide sugar craving, the latest series was such a success that American broadcaster CBS has picked up the rights to a U.S. version of the reality baking series.
