Alleged nude pics of one of The Great British Bake Off contestants leaked last week. Fans fell in love with Tom Hetherington and his smoldering good looks on the show, so when word got out that his nudes had leaked, the internet was abuzz. But Hetherington responded to the pics on his Twitter, clarifying they weren’t of him, and the reasons he gives are epic.
“I’m sorry to break it to you but the photos aren’t me,” the Scottish hunk explains. “1) I don’t have a pierced nipple. 2) After a year of solid baking I definitely don’t have a six pack. 3) I would never wear a shirt or a belt that hideous.”
We love his response, especially since he’s pointing out that because of his love for muffins and macarons he doesn’t have a six-pack.
Interestingly, he doesn’t point out that he isn’t circumcised (he is a Brit, after all), so we can still imagine what he’s packing under that apron while showing us how to flour a bundt.
Hetherington is an architect who lives in Edinburgh with his long-term partner David. On the show, he explained how his mom — a home economics teacher — was the one who taught him and his siblings how to bake.
“My whole family loves baking, and my partner had been encouraging me for some time to apply,” he said on The Great British Bake Off. “He thought I would enjoy the experience, and I am so glad I did take his advice and apply. Everyone in my family is so chuffed for me that I’ve got to be part of the 12 bakers who are in this year’s tent.”
Looks like we’re just going to have to settle for these thirst trap pics instead, which (unfortunately) feature a lot more clothing.
