Special episode: Class of 2012[edit]

In this episode, shown immediately before the final, the Class of 2012 return to the Bake Off tent to give a special insight to life inside the tent. They divulge how it felt to receive judgement from Mary and Paul; how they coped with having their ingredients siphoned off by Mel and Sue; and to what extent practising bagels, pies, petit fours, meringues, hidden design cakes and gingerbread constructions took over their lives. Reliving their perfectly risen highs and soggy bottom lows, the bakers also reveal how their experience in a tent, in the middle of a field and in extreme weather conditions, has changed their lives.

Episode 10: Final[edit]

In the Signature Challenge, the final three are challenged to create a Picnic Pie. The pie must be savoury, the fillings have to create a creative design and has to be strong enough to be served out of the tin. For the Technical Challenge, the bakers are challenged to make 12 perfectly shaped pretzels; 6 savoury with rock salt and 6 sweet, flavoured with poppy seeds and topped with sweet orange zest and glaze. For the final Showstopper Challenge of the series, the bakers are asked to bake the ultimate showpiece - a three tiered wedding cake.

Controversy[edit]

Before the series started, there was speculation Paul Hollywood would not appear in the show after his marriage broke down.[17][18][19] Mary Berry, however, was said to have supported Hollywood over rumours of his possible sacking by BBC,[20] and the BBC later denied the rumours and said that his job is safe.[21]

During the series, there were accusations of favouritism towards female contestants after the last man Glenn Cosby was eliminated from the show,[22] as well as allegations of Paul Hollywood's favouritism towards Ruby Tandoh,[23][24] and personal attacks on Tandoh by various people including the chef Raymond Blanc.[25][26][27] Both Paul Hollywood and Ruby Tandoh denied the accusation.[28][29]

Ratings[edit]

The show achieved some of the highest ratings seen on BBC Two. According to overnight data, the final episode was seen by 9.1 million viewers at its peak, and averaging over 8 million, more than twice the number of viewers on BBC One and ITV.[30] This episode is the highest-rated show ever on BBC2 under the ratings system first introduced in 2002, beating the previous record set by an episode of Top Gear in 2007.[31]

All ratings are taken from BARB.
