BAKE Off contestants Alice Fevronia and Henry Bird are feeling the heat after falling for each other post-filming, we can reveal.
They bonded on the current Channel 4 series and have since been out on a number of dates.
Geography teacher Alice, 28, has also introduced student Henry, 20, to her friends.
They are the show’s first contestants to find romance with a rival baker.
Viewers last week saw Alice hugging an upset Henry after his showstopper melted.
One source said: “The Bake Off contestants do become very close, and Alice and Henry hit it off from the start as they have a lot in common.
“They confided in each other a lot during the process, which can be quite intense at times.
“And since filming finished they have been spending more time together — including a few dates.
“It is early days but they are a lovely couple and seem very happy.
“Pals have been joking that it’s the cherry on top of the experience.”
Alice, from Essex, and Henry, from Durham, have posted a string of loved-up snaps on Instagram to fellow contestants’ delight.
Underneath one shot — at London’s Tate Modern this month — baker Michael Chakraverty wrote: “Such a beautiful couple.”
Another contestant, Helena Garcia, added: “You two couldn’t possibly be more adorable.”
Dan Chambers, who was axed in week one, commented: “You guys!!!” followed by three heart emojis.
Henry also posted a photo of Turkish bread last week.

Alice wrote: “These had better bloody be waiting for me when I get there tonight.”
Our source added: “Alice has now introduced Henry to her closest friends, which was obviously seen as a sign of how much she likes him. And the feeling is definitely mutual.
“Who knows what will happen, but it looks like their relationship has all the right ingredients.”
