After 10 exciting weeks, The Great British Bake Off final is here, with just three bakers left in the competition, and only one can be crowned the Ultimate Star Baker.


Last week saw Josh receive his second Star Baker title of the season after impressing the judges during Patisserie week.

Unfortunately for one baker, it was time to leave the Great British Bake Off 2023 line-up, with Tasha becoming the ninth contestant to be eliminated from the competition.

This week, the bakers will take on a series of challenges, and we'll see which lucky baker will be crowned the champion of the series!

So, what's on the menu this week?

Read on to find out what the contestants will be baking in The Final.
