It was a magical night

Great British Bake Off 2016 winner Candice Brown and her fiancé Liam Macaulay put on a festive front last night, at the VIP launch of Hogwarts in the Snow at the Warner Bros. Studies near Watford.

The pair looked loved up at the Harry Potter-themed event as they posed for photos in front of an incredible array of seasonal decorations.

Candice wore a cosy-looking green coat, polka dot dress and boots, while Liam opted for a trendy turtleneck under a smart blazer.

And she made sure her blinged-up engagement ring was front and centre in as many pictures as possible.

The united front comes shortly after Candice found herself embroiled in Paul Hollywood’s divorce controversy.

Paul recently announced that he and his wife Alex were splitting after almost 20 years of marriage.

At the Pride of Britain awards earlier this month, pictures emerged that appeared to show Paul and Candice tenderly kissing while saying goodbye.

But Candice said the kiss was nothing but a “goodbye peck” and her spokesman backed it up, saying the image was taken in the middle of seven other identical goodbyes.

Paul’s marriage was already on the rocks following revelations he’d had an affair with his US co-star Marcela Valladolid.

And it’s said he could stand to lose up to half of his reported £10 million fortune in the divorce proceedings.

For her part, Candice is excited to start work on the new series of Dancing on Ice, which she’ll be appearing in – although she admits her skating needs work!

She told the Sun: “It’s nerve wracking. I start my training today.

“I take my first steps on the ice later on. My friends call me Bambi on Ice and that’s just normal day-to-day!”

If she’s half as good a skater as she is a baker, she’ll have nothing to worry about!
