And Paul and Mary announced in tonight's show it was Candice Brown who had won the 2016 Great British Bake Off.

It was Royal week in the Bake Off tent as hosts Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins presented three final challenges to impress the Queen.

The last signature challenge of the series saw the GBBO 2016 finalists take on meringues for the second time this series, baking three-tier filled meringue crown.

In the ultimate technical challenge, Mary made a simple bake very, very tough as the finalists were asked to make a Victoria sandwich. They had an array of ingredients to choose from but no instructions at all.

It was then onto the last challenge of the series and what turned out to be an ultimate showstopper: 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.

After Paul and Mary's final tasting, it was time for the winner to be revealed.

And in Bake Off tradition, the past bakers returned and the family and friends of the finalists joined the tent for the final results.
