We fall in love with deaf reality star Sam Widnall (GBBO).

 

Sam Widnall is currently appearing on Bake Off: The Professionals on Channel 4 with his partner Adam Cleal. The pair, who work together at Palé Hall Hotel in Wales communicate via written notes and messages as Sam is deaf.

It’s great to see a deaf person in a non-sensationalised context - just like real life!

Sam is provided with an interpreter on the show.

bakeryinfo.co.uk tells us that “[Sam] hopes that by taking part in the series he can inspire other deaf people to pursue the career of their dream and not feel limited by their disability” (bakeryinfo.co.uk/Bake_Off:_The_Professionals_contestants_revealed)

Here’s hoping Sam will continue on the show!
