The final of the Great British Bake Off is upon us and just a few nail-biting challenges stand between the final three and the winning trophy.
Last week’s semi-final saw Scottish contestant Peter Sawkins triumph as he was rewarded with a coveted Paul Hollywood handshake after his outstanding technical bake.
The 20-year-old Edinburgh student today reflected on his time on the show ahead of the final and admitted he will have “mixed emotions” watching it for the last time.
The baker, who has melted hearts throughout the course of the series, took to Instagram to share his ‘sadness’ at the experience coming to an end.
Peter remained tight-lipped on who will be crowned the winner of Bake Off – but bookies reveal he is the favourite at odds of 2/5, according to Ladbrokes.
The student wrote: “Looking back through all my showstoppers ahead of the final tonight. What an experience!
“I have some mixed emotions thinking about watching the final episode.
“I will try to focus on the celebration of watching the final, but it also comes with an element of sadness knowing that this is the last time I will watch myself baking with my friends in that tent.
“I feel very lucky to have been able to see the process right through to the end, baking in all 30 challenges and sharing the experience with my amazing baking family and the phenomenal team in the bubble!
“Huge huge thanks to everyone who have supported myself and my fellow bakers along the way. Even though we can’t respond to everyone, know that your kindness is really appreciated.”
“For the final time, I hope you enjoy the episode tonight and that it can bring a smile to your face.”
Judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith look set to judge bakers Peter Sawkins, David Friday, and Laura Adlington in Tuesday night’s upcoming final on Channel 4.
Naturally, hosts Noel Fielding and Matt Lucas will be on hand to support the trio of bakers, but which one will reign supreme?
The Great British Bake Off airs tonight at 8pm on Channel 4.
