Great British Bake Off Final 2016

The baking programme comes to an end on Wednesday night (26Oct16) in a tense final as Andrew takes on Candice Brown and Jane Beedle in a bid to be crowned champion of the final series on the BBC. On her website she says she bakes everyday from breads, cakes or patisseries.

Jo Wheatley was crowned the victor of series two and the mum-of-three has gone on to become a food writer and set up a cookery school from her home in Essex.

As for the showstopper, the judges have asked for the most bakes ever requested for any challenge, and with one oven there's a solid five hours of cooking for the contestants.

Mary Berry has said she will work with Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins again, but joked a future project may involve gardening instead of baking.

Channel 4 is likely to lose a huge amount of viewers when the show moves but media industry sources believe the broadcaster can probably get the overall format to gain 3m viewers on average for the main show.

But he was forced to eat humble pie tonight, as the timer went on his time in the famous Bake Off tent. She's won Star Baker three times this series, more than any other baker, and her exotic Peacock showstopper during Tudor Week cemented her place as a finalist.

James will be inviting special guests to help with showcase the very best tips, tricks, and festive recipe ideas for Christmas this year.

Paul Hollywood is following the show when it moves to Channel 4, while fellow judge Berry and hosts Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins have announced they are leaving. She has just released her first cookbook Quintessential Baking and also takes part in cookery demonstrations and makes appearances at food festivals across the country.

Speaking with the radio host, she said of the final: 'It really is the most hard we've ever had, because you know, [it is] series seven and the showstopper is ... we are wanting sheer perfection and they will be very nervous because they have watched every series'.

Programme makers Love Productions are yet to reveal who else will front the show alongside Hollywood.
