Bake Off's Candice Brown finds love with rugby player Nicky Mercer one year after heartbreaking marriage split

CANDICE Brown steps out with her new hunky rugby player boyfriend as they hold hands while walking her dogs.

The Great British Bake Off 2016 winner, 36, has moved on with TUI regional pilot manager Nicky Mercer after she split from her husband last year.

She wore denim shorts with a blue t-shirt and sunglasses as she carried her Pomeranian Sybil in a sling.

Nicky accompanied her for the romantic stroll in East London and held her other dog, a pug called Dennis, on a lead.

He wore a classic England shirt that showed off his arm tattoos, with sunglasses, a chain and ripped jeans.

Nicky is normally seen donning the pink and black strip of his beloved Aylesbury Rugby Football Club, Bucks, which he plays centre for.

It comes after she and her tree surgeon husband Liam Macaulay revealed they were going their separate ways, less than two years on from their wedding day.

Earlier this year she spoke about the torment in the wake of the split.
She said: “I had a very difficult year last year — the hardest of my life.

“How the f*** I’m still going, I don’t know. But it was just a lot to take in, a lot to deal with.”
