GBBO's Giuseppe Dell'Anno Confirms Our Suspicions About Noel Fielding's On-Set Behavior

Another season of the "Great British Bake Off" is behind us and the winner of season 12 is Bristol-based and Italian-raised engineer Giuseppe Dell'Anno, who managed to win over the judges' hearts with his show-stopping bakes. Dell'Anno also won two Hollywood handshakes and two Star Bakers over the course of the season, despite a misfortunate oven malfunction in the finals that almost put a stop to his dominance.

According to a December interview with Vulture, Dell'Anno dishes, and confirms our suspicions about Noel Fielding's on-set behavior. Alongside Matt Lucas, Noel Fielding is the co-host of "The Great British Bake Off," but might be best known for his work with "The Mighty Boosh." If you're into comedy, you might also know him from Graham Linehan's hit British sitcom "The IT Crowd," where he played a gothic-vampiric worker in Reynholm Industries' IT Department. His goth preferences aren't limited to the show, however, as he continues to display the style while hosting GBBO.

Fielding is lovable and entertaining

Noel Fielding's on-set behavior may surprise you just as it did Giuseppe Dell'Anno, who reveals in Vulture's interview that the hosts of the "Great British Bake Off" are unexpectedly lovable and act like total gentlemen. The season 12 winner also shares that Fielding and co-host Matt Lucas ate lunch with the bakers every day and were very supportive, as well as concerned about their general well-being. 

In another interview with The Guardian, Dell'Anno said that Fielding was somewhat distracting, but very considerate, describing him as an "entertaining nuisance." Dell'Anno was a bit shocked with Fielding's wholesome on-set behavior because he presumed the television business was generally cutthroat and aggressive. These concerns were soon alleviated by the co-host's warm and caring ways. 

GBBO is well-known for its drama-free environment, which makes for a pleasurable, relaxing, and wholesome show-watching experience. After all, as Dell'Anno tells Vulture, "The stars of the show are the bakes, not the bakers," and he just might be right.
