In a shock for many, jewellery designer, Nicole Akong, did not take home the Great British Sewing Bee crown last night.

Having been tipped by bookies to win, many fans were surprised not to hear the jewellery designer named the 2020 winner.

Instead, frontline NHS work, Clare Bradley secured the title.


While fans took to social media to share disappointment over Akong’s loss, with many claiming she was “robbed”, the jewellery designer herself took the defeat graciously.

Alongside thanking everyone from the judges and production team, to her friends and family, Akong posted on Instagram: “Congratulations Clare! The clear winner in my eyes too. You amuse and inspire me daily. So happy for you, old chap!”

Although Akong did not win, she certainly showed the nation that her skills are not limited to jewellery.

To get to the final three was no small feat, and from the looks of the show and the contestant’s social media, Akong had the time of her life competing.
