Channel 4’s The Great British Bake Off has crowned their winner after a dramatic final.

The suspenseful final saw bakers Dan, Josh and Matty take on the last three challengers as they battled it out to become the 2023 champion.

Civil engineering resource planner, Dan from Cheshire had done well throughout Bake Off, impressing judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith with his unique flavours and tough bakes.

Josh from Leicestershire became the season's underdog as his calm-mannered approach continuously surprised judges with his bakes and amazing decorating skills.

PE teacher Matty from Cambridgeshire kept his bubbly personality strong during Bake Off and managed to excel during the show, often wowing Paul and Prue.

Matty was announced the winner of the Bake Off on Channel 4 for 2023.

Judges Paul and Prue had a tough time deciding who should take the crown home, but in the end, after a dramatic final, they chose Matty.

Despite getting some criticism with his signature, Matty wowed with his flavours and decorations, especially with his amazing showstopper.

Before joining Bake Off, Matty found his love for baking from his grandma after being impressed by her home-baked cake for his fourth birthday.

As his passion grew, he became the family baker and faced endless requests, with a style he describes as ‘rustic but neat’, Matty is set to be busy with many more orders now.

Sharing the exciting news on X, formally Twitter, the Bake Off account shared: “Well done to you, Matty! You didn't let your self doubts dictate your destiny - you overcame them and triumphed! Huge credit to your partner Lara for applying on your behalf too - turned out alright in the end!"
