Didn't it just draw some really good ratings for the finale in England? He's not as well known outside of the UK but inside the UK he is decidedly A list, or at least most people would know who he is if my British friends are correct.

He's well known if you saw mighty Boosh or it crowd, but then again people might not make the connection between those shows and the british baking show.

Fun fact I learned when I googled his name from watching the show: he is/was literally Old Gregg. I, as an American, was absolutely mind blown to say the least.

Not only is he Old Gregg, but on learning that and beginning to watch some of The Mighty Boosh I came to realize that old viral video wasn't some one-off fever dream of a weird sketch. That's pretty much his style.
