The armoured guard, who is facing Laura Adlington and Peter Sawkins in the finale tonight, was left a little shocked in hospital as his other half was in labour.
In fact, it turned out the doctor was a superfan of the show!
Speaking about the awkward moment, Dave told The Sun: ‘The midwives and doctors asked where they knew me from.
‘The doctor who delivered Ronnie is a big fan of Bake Off so was very excited about it. I have been recognised a bit — even with a face mask on!’
Dave’s son Ronnie arrived at the end of October. and is already following in his dad’s footsteps by posing with a baby-sized whisk.
And we’re sure he’ll be staying up way past his bedtime tonight as the winner of the Great British Bake Off is crowned on tonight’s episode.
In the intense finale, Peter, Dave and Laura will go head-to-head one last time in the iconic tent in order to impress Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith.
They’ll also be reuniting with the other bakers, who lived with them in their social bubble in order to get the show filmed.
Metro.co.uk readers voted for Peter to be the champion this year – but will the public vote match that of the judges?
Not too much longer to find out.
Great British Bake Off airs tonight at 8pm on Channel 4.
