Noel was inspired to take on his presenting gig on the baking show because Dali once starred in a chocolate advert.

His pal, Kasabian's Serge Pizzorno previously revealed: "We figured Salvador Dali did a chocolate advert, so it's OK. That sort of makes it all right."

Lliana and Noel, 44, have been together for seven years.

Serge previously confirmed his pal's happy news and said Noel will be a fantastic father.

He said: "He's going to be the best dad. It's going to be amazing. I can't wait."

Meanwhile, Noel previously revealed it was Serge who convinced him to accept a presenting role on "Great British Bake Off".

He said: "One of my friends, Serge from Kasabian, said, "Oh, you should get on this. It's great. I love it".

"I watched it back to back and really enjoyed it. I just thought, this is such a nice vibe and I really loved it. I didn't bake or anything, I was just a big fan.

"When they asked me to do it, I was really staggered. I just thought, this is too big an opportunity [to pass up]. Also, I really wanted to work with [co-presenter] Sandi Toksvig because I think Sandi was already in. I thought we'd be good together comedically."
