The 48-year-old who was a former finalist on the “Great British Bake Off” in 2014, Luis Troyano, has died from oesophageal cancer.

This information comes from Troyano’s agent, Anne Kibel, who tweeted out the news early Tuesday morning. She said his death occurred sometime last week.

“Sadly, my lovely client lost his brave fight against Oesophageal cancer last week," she wrote on Twitter. "A fantastic man with a love of baking that saw him get to the finals of GBBO, write a wonderful book, Bake It Great and do so much more. Always in our thoughts.”

The graphic designer also lost his dad to cancer when he was just 15 years old, reports Manchester Evening News.

Many fans, castmates and family members tweeted out their condolences and respect to the late baking star.

Troyano competed in 2014 on "Great British Bake Off," which is known as "The Great British Baking Show" in the U.S. He made it to the top 3 but lost to Nancy Birtwhistle. While the BBC lists the season as Series 5, the American edition of Netflix has it listed as Collection 1. (It was the first season to air stateside.)

Not only was he a finalist on "GBBO," but he went on to write and release a book called “Bake it Great” a year after his appearance on the show. He also appeared on multiple shows including "BBC Good Food" and various BBC Breakfast shows, according to BBC.

Louise Troyano, Troyano’s wife, has set up a fundraiser that supports the Macmillan Cancer Support for those who would like to honor her husband. It’s one of the largest charities in Britain to help those affected by cancer.
