Review

The Great British Bake Off…parting is such sweet sorrow that I shall say goodnight till you be on Channel 4 without three key members of the team – as Shakespeare almost said.

It’s the final, and a difficult farewell for audience members who have just one last chance (we’re not counting a couple of Christmas specials to come) to watch Mel, Sue, Mary and Paul, the original gang of four, as the show leaves the BBC.

But let’s try to forget that the most popular programme on British television has been dismantled overnight and turn our attention to the three remaining contestants - Andrew, Candice and Jane. They are an evenly matched little group and it’s a real seesaw of a last round, despite (gasp!) not one but TWO “Hollywood handshakes” very early on.

The showstopper is immense, comprising 49 different items and a lot of elements. “I’m expecting perfection,” says Paul Hollywood, as proud families, friends and other Bakers gather for a picnic and to watch the coronation of the winner.

Summary

Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins present this year's grand final, as the three remaining bakers compete to impress judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood and take home this year's trophy. For the final three challenges, they must prepare perfect meringues and are set a seemingly simple technical task with a twist - the recipe only includes one instruction. Finally, they must prove their worth in the most complex showstopper ever featured on the show.
