Andrew's crown got a mixed reception from Paul and Mary, Candice's "impressive" construction won her a handshake from Paul but Jane's "three layers of heaven" left Paul close to hugging Jane.

Next was the ultimate technical challenge. Set my Mary the final three bakers had to make a classic Victoria sandwich. They were given an array of ingredients to pick from but no instructions on which they should use and how to combine them.

When it came to the countdown, Jane ranked third, Candice was in second and Andrew made up for the poor signature by topping the lot.

The last ever BBC series of the Great British Bake Off then went out with the baking equivalent of a bang as Paul and Mary requested a whole PICNIC showstopper from each baker.

They had 5 hours to make a chocolate cake, 12 puff pastry sausage rolls, 12 mini quiches, 12 scones and 12 tarts.

In Bake Off tradition, the past bakers then returned and the family and friends of the finalists joined the tent for the final results of the series.
