The Final

The three finalists face a showstopper which is the most complex ever seen on Bake Off and which has the most bakes ever requested in a challenge. Who will be crowned champion?

It is the final, and with just three of the original twelve bakers remaining. The theme for the final is a Royal Bake Off, as the tent plays host to three challenges to impress the Queen.

The last signature challenge sees a return to meringues, a challenge that a few of the bakers stumbled over in week six.

For the technical challenge, Mary has made a simple bake very, very tough, as she has only given the bakers one recipe instruction. The rest is down to them. It may be a very British classic, but with no measurements, this is the ultimate test of the final three bakers' intuition.

Then on the final day, as the bakers' families gather outside the tent, the finalists face their last show-stopper. This is the most complex one ever seen on Bake Off, and there are the most bakes ever requested in a challenge. With only one oven, it's five solid hours of baking for the finalists to prove they deserve the winner's trophy.

Who will be named the winner of The Great British Bake Off 2016?
