What a lovely five weeks. From communist cats to James McAvoy’s stiff peaks, KSI’s upended cherry tart to John Bishop’s smashed bowls, it’s been a delight. Take care everyone, and we’ll see you soon x
Despite what the Channel 4 announcer just said, this is the last new episode of The Great Celebrity Bake Off (next week is a repeat), so this is Michael and I signing off from this liveblog for now.
Thank you once again for all of your comments and kind words BTL every week. We’ve enjoyed it immensely.
It was obviously going to be Anneka. From her Signature that could have been from that Big Painting Challenge programme to her utterly bonkers helicopter Showstopper.
The winner is…
Anneka! The most well deserved win – in Nadine’s words, she’s “a roilly giud behhhker”. Elsewhere, John Bishop is livid that had to bake in a tent for two days after discovering he could’ve just bought a Star Baker apron online (as can you!).
I like that they’re spinning out this section to make it sound like Anneka isn’t going to win, when we all know that she will.
“Frankly what we all want to do is bury our faces in Nadine’s moist … sponge”. Anneka knows EXACTLY what she is doing.
Nadine has absolutely no decoration whatsoever but the cake itself is a beaut. With everyone else’s bakes tasting rather underwhelming, dare I say could she clinch it?
Ade has made the brown ring Anneka was talking about earlier. I’m not sure I agree that he’s done “a decent job”, as Paul suggests.
