'Bake Off' Fans Convinced Henry Bird And Michael Chakraverty Are Dating After Cosy Picture
And so, naturally, despite the fact it's a baking show first and foremost, it hasn't taken viewers long to chuck a few rumoured romances into the mix.
First, people thought Alice Fevronia and Henry Bird were an item after they were spotted sharing a hug during pastry week.
But now, viewers have another theory involving Henry, instead suspecting he might actually be seeing Michael Chakraverty.
The new speculation started after Alice shared a photo on her Instagram story of Michael and Henry cuddling while baking a batch of brownies.
In the snap, 20-year-old English Literature student Henry rested his head on 26-year-old theatre manager Michael's shoulder as he whisked their brownie mixture.
And the most convincing part? Alice captioned it: "BAE-ke Off," alongside a heart emoji.
After spotting the image, fans were quick to put two and two together, pulling out another of Alice's old posts in which Henry can be seen kissing Michael on the cheek, while fellow contestant David Atherton does the same to Alice.
Alice had teased us all, captioning the picture: "But how many couples can you see...?"

While at the time everybody assumed this was a response to rumours she was dating Henry, could it have been about him and Michael all along?
The two GBBO stars are yet to confirm their romance, and, of course, there's also every possibility they could just be close friends.
However, naturally, fans are living for it online.
"THEY'RE DATING NOW?! #GBBO," one person wrote, sharing Alice's Instagram story.
While another added: "Platonic or romantic who cares..... i want what henry and michael have (sic)." We agree. Whatever's going on they're absolute goals.
Tyla has contacted Michael and Henry for comment.
The speculation comes amid Bake Off fever tonight, as fans of the show prepare to watch Alice fight against Steph Blackwell and David for the top spot?
But who will Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith crown victorious?
The Great British Bake Off final airs tonight on Channel 4 from 8pm.
