Great British Bake Off winner Rahul became friends with the Ansons after coming to the UK

An exploding glass jar, a nail-biting finale and ultimately, triumph over adversity - and a Bake Off victory for the shy and rather nervous research scientist Rahul Mandal.

Among the first people he turned to for a hug after his victory were the British couple he's known since arriving eight years ago - David and Liz Anson.

David, who is a nuclear scientist, is Rahul's boss and Liz is a Church of England priest.
