Steven's thrown it away with those bleeding layers, whereas Kate's had a really strong week but I doubt it's enough to get her the win.

Steven has frustrated me so much throughout this program - I swear, he's the most un-ideal contestant. :lol:

I'm happy Sophie won but I'd prefer Kate to have won!

It really was. There was hardly any emotion like previous years that I’ve seen. I think I liked Kate the most in the end :lol:

Sophie is just so insincere and I cannot believe she won. The way she spoke to the camera always bugged me week by week. It's a great show about baking but all the good "personalities" left weeks ago. :(

I was delighted when Stephen messed up! Sophie was my favourite of the final 3, but Kates final bake was stunning too!

For me it's Noel Fielding who was the real winner in this

‘Great British Bake Off’ Final Scores Huge Ratings As It’s Confirmed Prue Leith Will Return Next Year Following Twitter Mishap

Tuesday night’s final of ‘The Great British Bake Off’ was watched by almost nine million people, it has been revealed.

A massive 8.9 million of us - the biggest audience of the entire series - watched Sophie Faldo bake her way to victory, beating off stiff competition from runners-up Steven Carter-Bailey and Kate Lyon.


It’s unknown just how many of those watching already knew the result though, after judge Prue Leith accidentally tweeted who had won 12 hours before last night’s final.

But despite her social media faux pas, which she said had left her “mortified”, Channel 4 bosses have already forgiven her.

The channel’s CEO, Alex Mahon, has confirmed Prue has already signed her up for next year’s series, alongside fellow judge Paul Hollywood and new presenting duo, Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig.

She said: “It’s testament to the phenomenal appeal of The Great British Bake Off that almost nine million people watched Sophie triumph as Channel 4’s first ever Bake Off winner – a fitting finale to the most watched series for young viewers on any channel this year.

“Love Productions, along with Paul, Prue, Noel and Sandi, have served up a showstopper of a series and I’m delighted that they’ll all be back in the tent on Channel 4 next year.”

Sophie, who was the bookies favourite going into the final, said she couldn’t believe she’d been crowned ‘Bake Off’ champ.

She said: “The idea of winning is such a minute possibility. I don’t think I’ll ever forget this as long as I live.”

Like many previous winners, Sophie now hopes to turn her attention to cooking full-time.

“It would be wonderful to write a patisserie book but let’s see what comes my way,” she said. “I would like to try travelling the world for inspiration for starters.”

I didn't mind Sophie but she was duil.

You're right, losing Flo-Tom-Yan-Julia-Liam-Stacey pretty much in a row was criminal. The best of this years' cast. STACEY BEING THE BEST.

Adam's judgement is so OFF sometimes.

Liam definitely should've been in the final alongside one of Yan and Julia.

So it’s hard to comment on them after one episode but I like the French woman who was Star Baker and the South Asian guy, although his selfie was pretty bad :lol:

Her from Wakefield could be annoying or amazing. I didn’t like the way she sat there eating crisps while everyone else tried to finish, came across as cocky.

Ruby and Manon saved themselves with their showstoppers thankfully! So did Karen but I'm not a fan despite how good it looked. Bless little Rahul :lol:

Shame for those whose showstoppers melted in the heat.

I felt so bad for them. I don't understand why they don't have loads of fans in the tent on hot days.

Paul’s giving out handshakes like they’re sweets this series.

Talking of this series, not the most enthralling is it?

I’ve got Kim Joy in the work sweepstake - I don’t have even the slightest chance of winning the money. :lol:

She’s making mini turtles FFS.
