Our hearts go out to Jane

Jane Beedle is currently enjoying amazing success on The Great British Bake Off but at the moment she’s facing devastating heartbreak: her father has passed away.

While she should be celebrating her Bake Off final success (the show is filmed months ago), the baker has had to fly to his home in France last week to help her family to their affairs.

‘Jane and her family are absolutely buzzing over her success on Bake Off but have had to put the BBC show to one side for now,’ a source told The Sun.


‘Jane’s father’s health took a turn for the worse and sadly passed away last week.

‘The whole family are grieving and it’s had a big impact on Jane particularly. She was very close with her dad.

‘Even though it’s the Bake Off final next week Jane wanted to make sure she was there with her family to clear his house and go through his belongings. It was a really emotional time.’

Jane hinted at her heartbreak last week, by sharing a picture with her younger brother in France.

She captioned the pic: ‘With my, not so little, brother in France. It’s lovely to see him but it’s a shame it’s in sad circumstances. Fun to watch #GBBO together.’

Jane Beedle is facing off against Candice Brown and Andrew Smyth in the final of this year’s Great British Bake Off competition.
