Great British Bake Off champion John Whaite sells up in Woolwich:the Perfect Plates In 5 Ingredients author plans a move to Lancashire

The 2012 GBBO winner has lived in the London flat for three years and wrote his cookbooks in the kitchen.

The dough is rising in John Whaite’s bank account, now that the 2012 Great British Bake Off winner has found a buyer for his Woolwich flat.

Just over a month after listing the one-bedroom apartment in the historic Royal Herbert Pavilions development, it has been snapped up for £330,000.

The champion baker has lived in the flat for three years and fans will recognise the living room, as he is pictured in it for the cover of his latest book, Perfect Plates In 5 Ingredients.

He wrote his second and third cookbooks in the kitchen, where he also tested out many of his delicious recipes.

The plush development includes a gym, swimming pool, steam room, sauna, tennis court and private bar for residents.


Whaite is sad to part ways with the property but he is leaving London for Lancashire, where his business is now based.
