The final of the Channel 4 baking show came to a thrilling end on Tuesday night.

After a gruelling three rounds of intricate bakes, former army officer Sophie Faldo was crowned champion of The Great British Bake Off.

Despite the fact judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith deemed Sophie worthy of the coveted cake stand, viewers didn’t seem to agree.

However, fans didn’t think that runners up Kate Lyon and Steven Carter-Bailey should have won either.

“Well done Sophie #GBBO although I think Liam should’ve won,” came the response from a fourth.

With another adding: “Still feel ripped off that Liam didn’t have a surprise win at the end #GBBO.”
