The past 24 hours have been HUGE in showbiz land with Zayn and Perrie's engagement news, Simon Cowell confirming he's about to be a dad and in amongst all that, millions of us found time to tune into the Great British Bake Off!

First up and Simon Cowell chose last night's massive One Direction: This Is Us movie premiere to finally confirm reports he's the father to Laura Silverman's baby. Attending the 1D premiere last night the music mogul decided to put an end to the rumours telling BBC News: "I'm proud to be a dad." adding: "It's something I hadn't thought of before, but now I know I feel good about it. Things are changing in my life right now, for the better”.

And on the same night an even bigger announcement was made! We couldn't help but notice the very sparkly ring on Perrie Edwards' finger as she walked the red carpet with Little MIx. And after a lot of "are they aren't theys" over night, EntertainmentWise got confirmation today that indeed Perrie is engaged to Zayn Malik! Deborah Edwards also revealed the engagement to Real Radio: saying "They got engaged on Sunday and it's absolutely lovely. Perrie loves him to pieces and it's perfect." Well congratulations to them both!

But last night wasn’t all about 1D as an incredible 6.3 million tuned into BBC 2 to watch the new series of The Great British Bake Off! It seems that people were super eager to see judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood try out the baked treats of another eager 13 contestants. Even after Paul Hollywood's marriage scandal, the cookery show still managed to rack up a lot of attention with celebs like Nigella Lawson and Lily Rose Cooper tuning in, did you join them?

Until tomorrow!
