The actress impressed judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith with her minty flapjacks in the signature bake round, came first in the technical challenge for her French Horn, and ultimately sealed the deal with her ski-themed meringue showstopper.

Leith and Hollywood were in awe of Keegan’s meringue creation, which featured a tiny skier half buried in the snow. Hollywood, with those blue eyes a’sparkling, even described it as “faultless”.

It was a less successful visit to the tent for Acaster, however, who described Bake Off as the “worst experience of my life”.

Keegan is the second winner of this year’s Celebrity Bake Off, after Russell Brand won episode one with an “amazing” vagina showstopper.
