Great British Bake Off star Laura Adlington may have missed out on winning the series, but she does now have a very famous fan.

Adlington was beaten by Peter Sawkins, who became the series' youngest ever winner earlier this week.

But, she was left surprised after receiving a supportive message from Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke

Appearing on spinoff show Extra Slice, Adlington revealed that the actor, who played Daenerys Targaryen on the HBO show, had sent her a direct message ahead of the finale.

"Emilia Clarke, mother of dragons from Game of Thrones, sent me a message," she said.

"[Clarke] just said, 'Laura, me and my friends love you. Thanks for brightening up our lockdown. We hope you win.'"

Adlington added: "I think she called me a “baking queen”. So my life is now complete, quite frankly. Friends with Matt Lucas and Emilia Clarke. Doesn’t get better than that, does it?"

Lucas co-hosted this year's series alongside Noel Fielding following the departure of Sandi Toksvig.

The Great British Bake Off can be streamed on All4.
