- A Goldman Sachs staffer in London is set to appear on hit TV show The Great British Bake Off.

A long serving employee at Goldman Sachs is set to appear on the hit UK TV show The Great British Bake Off, which starts on Tuesday evening.
Antony Amourdoux, who works in operations for Goldman in London, according to the Daily Telegraph, will appear on the show, which pits amateur bakers against one another for the chance to be crowned “Star Baker.”
Amordoux, who is 30, grew up in India, and previously worked for the bank in its Bengaluru office. He moved to London in 2016, and according to the Telegraph has worked for Goldman since 2009.
Amordoux’s precise role at the bank is unclear, although the Telegraph reports that he is “responsible for signing partnerships with the firm’s top clients.” His LinkedIn profile lists only his education.
“All of my friends back home in India will be really surprised,” Amordoux told The Sun. “They have known me to be a singer in a choir, a two-piece band but never as a baker, so it will be interesting to see their reaction.”
The Telegraph reports that Amordoux last week sent a memo to colleagues saying that he previously had a mantra to “wing it,” but has since changed his approach: “I changed my mantra to start a plan and stick to it.”
Amourdoux joins a growing list of City of London workers appearing on The Great British Bake-Off, with Selasi Gbormittah, a client service associate at Deutsche Bank appearing on the 2016 series, and James Hillery, the head of tax transparent fund implementation at financial services firm Northern Trust, appearing on last year’s show.
