Meanwhile, Ed confirmed last month he was leaving Better Homes and Gardens and opening a new bakery.
‘After more than two decades of sharing recipes as a presenter on Better Homes and Gardens, I have made the decision to step back from my role on the show,’ he said.
‘I never intended to work in television, it just kind of happened. In 2004 I was asked to do a screen test, and the fact I am still here on Better Homes and Gardens 20 years later is equal parts fantastic and bizarre.’
‘This is the longest job I have ever had, and it’s time for me to have a new adventure,’ he said.
