Great British Bake Off winner Candice Brown has ruled out the possibility of having her own show.

Appearing on ITV's Loose Women, Candice was quizzed over what's next for her following her success on Bake Off - especially as she recently made the decision to leave her job as a teacher.

But, when talk of her own TV show cropped up into conversation, Candice didn't seem so keen. She joked: "I think people would be sick of my face and voice!"

She revealed that, for her, the ultimate goal is to have her own recipe book.

"A book would be amazing," she gushed. "That would be the ultimate memoir; that's my ideas and my recipes."

Candice also opened up about her decision to give up teaching and explained that doing so has given her the time to work on potential material for her own book release.

She told the panel: "At the moment there is nothing set in stone, but [quitting teaching] just gives me a bit of time. I haven't had the time to play around with recipes and think about different things."

"I'm not that great with making big decisions," she confessed. "I really love and still do feel myself as a teacher. I really did [agonise] over the decision."

Candice added that her family have been "so supportive" from the very beginning of Bake Off.

"My family are amazing," she said. "We are such a close unit, they've been so supportive all the way through. I didn't even expect to get on the show, let alone get through week by week by week and then end up as that winner - it still feels alien to me to say that."

Speaking about her family, Candice also took the time to clear up *those* engagement rumours. She and her boyfriend Liam Macualay have been dating for four and a half years, but despite what's been said, he hasn't yet proposed.

Candice spurred on rumours after being pictured with a ring on her wedding finger, but she shrugged: "I like wearing jewellery. Poor boy."

She won the seventh series of the Great British Bake Off, beating Jane Beedle and Andrew Smyth to the trophy.
