Tonight is the final of GBBO so I will have to find another place to provide me with the televisual equivalent of a cuddle every week. To round up: the standard in this series has been high, there was a controversy over a baked Alaska (getting the big guns out for BBC One) and it included Martha, their youngest ever contestant at 17. It’s also been a series of firsts in the fact that favourite Richard Burr has been awarded Star Baker a record five times. Frankly if he doesn’t win it will be a travesty. Barring some patisserie related psychotic episode, I don’t see how he could blow it. I found him sweet from the start, in the very fiirst episode smiling excitedly about his daughters. It was a small thing but it stuck in my mind. I look forward to seeing what delicacies are produced tonight.
Finally, I’d like to recommend that the sugary treats are moved away from Sue, it seems to have gone to her head.
