"It’s always great meeting new people and being part of the GBBO family this year has to be one of the best experiences of my life. I’m in awe at Love [Productions] managing to make the programme under the circumstances and wanted to say a ‘big thank you!’ for looking after me so well."

She continued: “I’ve felt so valued throughout this experience and have met some lovely people. Everything I’ve read about the show has been amazing and I’m so proud to have been part of GBBO 2020. Thank you Everyone for your lovely comments. I’m really excited to see who wins! Scream!”

Paul Hollywood was not impressed with Linda's final performance in the kitchen 

The 61-year-old was on the show for five weeks, and impressively claimed the top spot in two technical challenges.

But it was a tricky eclair recipe that caught Linda out, and she found herself having to complete the process three times in a row in order to get her pastry to rise, meaning that she did not have enough time to top the tasty treats.

Prue Leith told her: "Those weren’t finished," With Paul Hollywood adding: "There's no rise in that."
