The Bake Off theme will see the bakers try their very best as they tackle the ultimate celebration cake before the winner is is crowned.

Viewers had to say goodbye to Tasha last week, after she fell short during Patisserie Week, despite winning Star Baker twice before during the competition.

Despite having to leave the competition, Tasha left with her head held high.

"It is OK. It’s so emotional to say goodbye to everyone, that’s when it really hit. They are amazing people. They really are friends for life.

"That is the really special thing about Bake Off, it is the most supportive and loving environment. It has changed me and made me realise I can do so much more than I am capable of. It’s a special place, and I am very lucky to be part of it," she said upon her exit.

As the final baking challenges of the series begin, read on for everything you need to know about The Great British Bake Off 2023, including what time it's on and which bakers remain in the running to be crowned this year's winner.

The Great British Bake Off 2023 judges

Prue Leith has now teamed up with original judge Paul Hollywood for five seasons, and both return for season 14.

Ahead of the show, Leith revealed to Radio Times magazine that she and Hollywood had learned sign language to be able to communicate better with Tasha.

"She had a signer, so we all learnt a bit of sign language," Leith said. "Paul was terrific and he learnt a lot. I just about managed to learn how to say 'good luck' and 'well done'."

Who won The Great British Bake Off 2022?

Last year's series was won by Dr Syabira Yusoff, a cardiovascular research associate based in London, who pipped fellow contestants Abdul Sharif and Sandro Farmhouse to the post.

Speaking about Syabira's win, Paul Hollywood said: "Well done, Syabira. She can be a bit of a risk-taker with her flavours, and it has worked. Some of the flavours we have never had in the tent before and [are] unlikely to have again, she is an incredible baker."

Prue Leith added: "She is creative and she is careful, she practises like anything and she is imaginative, she just has the lot. She is a very skilful baker."

Syabira was obviously delighted, saying: "Thank you so much. I can’t believe it. Honestly, it hasn’t sunk in yet, this is the biggest achievement in my life. All the hard work, all the trial and error, it has all been worth it. I am very, very proud."

The Great British Bake Off final airs on Channel 4 at 8pm on Tuesday 28th November.
