    That's not baking. That's fruit jenga #gbbo #GBBOFinal
    Nadiya has got this. Unless this is Ed Miliband all over again, and I'm not emotionally ready quite frankly #gbbofinal
    Mary is sporting that classy Hermes belt again, her favourite. She's got the best floral jacket collection ever seen on television too. She gets to eats cakes for a living. Not a bad life.

    Sticky Toffee Pudding Cake from Tamal for his showstopper. Spun sugar representing cobwebs. A classic British cake, based on an ancient, abandoned, Chinese fishing village. Gotta love this kid.

    Obviously, Ian is making five cakes. Five. Five cakes.

    Tamal's complaining about how the judges keep 'banging on about precision'. Erm, GBBO final, Tamal.

    Nadiya is opting for a lemon drizzle cake, in the style of a wedding cake, for the British wedding she never had. She and her husband married in Bangladesh, and jewels from the big day will feature on the cake. Sounds beaut.

    There is going to be a post-show party and Mary is going to 'reprise her famous twerking routine'. This is not a hoax. Okay, it's probably a hoax, but oh the visual images...

    Ok Nadiya- you're a goal up in injury time. Bring it home. #GBBOFinal
    Sweaty palms alert. It's crunch time.

    They're all getting emotional. Crying and stuff. It's too much. Pass the tissues.

    Tamal gets our vote for presentation, those toffee cobwebs would make for an incredible Halloween cake.

    Exceeeeedingly good cake, says Mary Berry.

    One of the best carrot cakes Paul has ever eaten. Thumbs up Ian. Three beautiful showstoppers. Genuinely can't call it.

    Ian's iced carrot is massively oversized. Reminds me of men who drive sports cars. Overcompensating, Ian? #GBBOFinal
    And the winner is....
