The Great British Bake Off 2022 final is finally here after 10 amazing weeks in the famous tent.


Now just three bakers remain in the Great British Bake Off 2022 line-up with the hopes of being crowned this year's winner.

Still in the running to take home the coveted glass cake stand is Sandro – a 30-year-old nanny who has served up some of the judges' favourite bakes over the course of the competition.

Sandro will compete against Abdul and Syabira, who fans have predicted will win Bake Off this year.

Despite the tough competition, Sandro wasn't nervous for the final, saying: "Approaching the finals I didn’t feel that nervous, to be honest. I have dreamed of being in the finals more than I have being in the tent.

"It was always a goal for me so I felt super proud to have got far, and from there I just wanted to enjoy the last few moments of my dream. I went into the finals with the aim of enjoying myself, it did feel like just three buddies in a tent baking for the last time."

So, does Sandro have what it takes to crowned the Great British Bake Off 2022 winner?

Here's everything you need to know about him.

Sandro was born in Angola, but fled the Angolan war with his mum when he was two. They then settled then in London, where Sandro now works as a nanny. He is also passionate about fitness, and is a keen boxer while also having a background in ballet and breakdance.

Sandro first turned to baking as a form of therapy after his father passed away was he was 21. He now runs virtual baking classes for children with autism.

He lives and breathes baking and likes to infuse his bakes with flavours from his Angolan heritage, including paprika paired with tangy cheese, and sweet bakes smothered in sticky dulce de leche.
