It’s the final! Twelve bakers started, now, just three remain, but only one can be crowned winner of The Great British Baking Show. This final theme is a right Royal Baking Show, as the tent plays host to three challenges to impress the Queen – and of course, the British baking queen, Mary Berry, and fellow judge, King Paul of Hollywood. In their last signature challenge, it’s a return to meringues, a challenge that a few of the bakers stumbled over in Week 6. But in the final, this time, there is no room for error, or cracks. In the technical challenge, Mary has made a simple bake very, very tough, as she gives the bakers only one recipe instruction. It may be a very British classic but, with no measurements, it’s the ultimate test of our final three bakers’ intuition. On the final day, as the bakers’ families gather outside the tent, the finalists face their one last chance to bake for glory: the showstopper. This years’ final showstopper proves to be one of the most complex challenges ever seen on Baking Show. With only one oven, it’s five solid hours of baking for the finalists to prove they deserve the winner’s trophy. Who will be named the winner of The Great British Baking Show?
