Flo is easily becoming the best thing about this year’s Great British Bake Off

The 71-year-old gran from Merseyside has made a pile of new fans following Bake Off's Biscuit Week

Forget Noel, Sandi and all that guff about moving to Channel 4: The Great British Bake Off has found its star, and she’s a hard-partying 71-year-old from Merseyside. Flo, we love you.


There’s always a fan favourite among Bake Off viewers, and Biscuit Week was the week Flo broke through, mainly thanks to this little sequence that showed her dancing to Meghan Trainor’s All About That Bass with her “girlfriends”.

The oldest ever contestant on Bake Off has also clearly become a favourite among the other bakers in the tent, including 19-year-old Liam, who congratulated her on her “sick” bakes in last night’s episode.

While fellow baker Julia has made a friend for life.

Friendship has no age limits ❤❤❤ #GBBO #Friends #Love

She entered the Bake Off danger zone thanks to a dodgy technical and a disappointing Operation-based boardgame showstopper…

…but thankfully for her new-found fans Flo lived to bake another week – and she’s even won over new judge Prue Leith.



The Great British Bake Off continues next Tuesday at 8pm on Channel 4
