Watch The Great British Bake Off Final: Preview

Note that this article contains spoilers about Season 14 of The Great British Bake Off. If you are not yet caught up and don't wish to know which bakers are in the final, then head to our general spoiler-free guide on how to watch The Great British Bake Off.

Put down the piping bag. Silence the stand mixer. Step away from the whisk. After nine tumultuous weeks in the tent, the grand final of The Great British Bake Off – or The Great British Baking Show as it's known in North America – is here, and you can find out who will be crowned Season 14's champion baker with our guide to watch The Great British Bake Off Final online from wherever you are.

Last week's emotional semi-final saw a tearful Tasha leave the tent, with Dan, Josh and Matty the last men standing. All three have impressed the judges with their skills over the course of the series, bagging six Star Baker awards (two each) between them across the nine previous episodes.

Thanks to his tremendous Tarte aux Pommes technical, perfect Pudding Financiers and lush Lemon, Blackberry & Blackcurrant Millefoglie, Josh was made the semi's Star Baker. So if there's any such thing as the form book when it comes to Bake Off, then he has the momentum heading into the final three bakes.

The temperature in the kitchen gets turned up to boiling point for the GBBO final, with the level of difficulty increasing again. Things may go all the way down to the showstopping celebration cake, that will really separate the men from the boys. New host Alison Hammond will return, too, after missing the stressful semi-final due to being unwell.

Find out all the details about the Season 14 climax below including how to watch The Great British Bake Off Final 2023 online around the world and more details about this year's three finalists.

Everything We Know About The Great British Bake Off Final

What Will Be Baked In The Great British Bake Off Final 2023?

Channel 4 keep things pretty close to their chest when it comes to giving away what's to come in future episodes of The Great British Bake Off.

So we only really know what's on Channel 4's own listings: "The finalists make a pastry Signature, a sticky Technical and a showstopping celebration cake."

Who Is In The 2023 Great British Bake Off Final?

Season 14 of the Great British Bake Off has an all-male final, with Dan, Josh and Matty the last trio of bakers.

All three were named Star Baker twice during the series, with Dan's ‘Pale Blue Dot’ Meringue Bombe, Josh's mixed-fruits Millefoglie, and Matty's ‘Sports’ Buffet all impressing the judges in the final few weeks of the competition.

Great British Bake Off Finalists: Who Is Dan?

Dan Hunter is a 42-year-old resource planner from Cheshire.

He was Season 14's first Star Baker, impressing the judges with his Rhubarb & Custard' Vertical Layer Cake and 'Bruno' Cake. He repeated the feat in Episode 7's Dessert Week, thanks to an unusual array of ‘Thai Green Curry’ Crème Caramels, technically excellent treacle puddings and ‘Pale Blue Dot’ Meringue Bombe.

But he did have a wobble during Bread Week when his Devonshire Splits technical was rated as the worst of all the contestants'.

Great British Bake Off 2023 Finalists: Who Is Josh?

Josh Smalley is a 27-year-old chemistry researcher from Leicestershire.

The youngest of this year's finalists, Josh took a while to grow into the series with some middling results in the first few weeks.

But things really took a turn for the tasty during Botanical Week in Episode 6, in which his Lemon & Blueberry Spiced Buns and Rhubarb, Raspberry & Hibiscus Floral Dessert helped him earn his first Star Baker award. Josh then had a superb semi-final, wowing Prue, Paul and co with his Perfect Pudding Financiers, Lemon, Blackberry & Blackcurrant Millefoglie showstopper and technically excellent Tarte aux Pommes.

Great British Bake Off 2023 Finalists: Who Is Matty?

Matty Edgell is a 28-year-old PE and science teacher from Peterborough.

Matty was named Star Baker for the first time back in Episode 4's Chocolate Week, thanks to his Hazelnut & Chocolate Torte and showstopping Chocolate Box Cake. But he wasn't far from leaving the tent during the double elimination in week 5 and again during Desserts Week.

He struck back in style in Party Week however, where his 'Classic’ Sausage Rolls signature and 'Sports’ Buffet showstopper put a smile back on the faces of the judges.
