Fury is well known for his long distance runs along Morecambe beach and he completed another lengthy stretch near his home as he bids to stay in shape outside of the ring.
After completing his session the ‘Gypsy King’ then headed for the kitchen and proudly showed off his stunning dessert on Instagram.
He tweeted: ‘Afternoon everyone have a blessed Sunday. I’ve made a lovely [trifle] to celebrate my 10 mile run this morning, #britishbakeoff2020 #summertimefun #stayhomestaysafe.’
Fury has also been praised by his former coach, Ben Davison, for inspiring normal people outside of the ring for coming through his battles with mental health.
The heavyweight overcame mental issues and drugs problems before losing 10-stone in weight and reclaiming his world title after three years out of the ring.

Davison, who played a key role in Fury’s weight loss and return to the ring but parted ways with him prior to his second victorious fight against Deontay Wilder, says his influence is comparable to Muhammad Ali.
He said to talkSport: ‘He has inspired thousands of people along the way and people won’t like comparing him – while he is current – to the likes of Muhammad Ali.
‘But what he has managed to achieve inside the ring and outside the ring in terms of the quality he has shown in the ring, but in the way he has inspired and helped so many people outside the ring.
‘Tyson Fury will be spoke about for many, many, many years to come and probably in eras when we are long gone.’
Ali forged his legend after completing an incredible comeback during his career. He was frozen out of boxing and denied a license for refusing to join the US army and fight in the Vietnam War.
Ali didn’t fight between October 1967 and October 1970, between the ages of 25 and nearly 29, before his license was reinstated after the American public grew sympathetic to his protests against the war.
He went on to regain his status as heavyweight champion of the world and was involved in some of the greatest fights of all-time against great rivals Joe Frazier and George Foreman.
