The Great British Bake Off 2021’s final episode aired tonight, with all three final contestants feeling the immense pressure of the challenge. The three finalists, Crystelle Pereira, Giuseppe Dell’Anno, and Will ‘Chigs’ Chirag, had already proved to be the best of the baking best, but only one could win. Express.co.uk has all the details on the 2021 final.

Who won The Great British Bake Off 2021?

After first premiering at the end of September, the competition once again came to a close with one of the most intense finals ever.

Ultimately, it was Giuseppe that won the competition.

An emotional Giuseppe told the Channel 4 cameras: “There are no words. I am speechless – for once!”

At first, the three finalists were challenged to bake a carrot cake, a seemingly simple recipe that proved to be more of a mess than it first appeared.

Crystelle admitted to feeling the pressure immediately but said that she would “just pretend it isn’t the final” to get through.

Chigs, the least experienced of the three, once again proved he could learn on the fly, breezing through the signature challenge.

However, none of the contestants had a clear win with the signature challenge, with all of them making some mistakes.

This was followed by the dreaded technical challenge, tasked to bake 12 Belgian Buns.

Giuseppe came in last for the technical challenge, with Chigs in second, giving Crystelle the win.

Crystelle said she “could not believe” she won it, saying: “It took 10 weeks, but I got there.”

It put Crystelle ahead before the final challenge, but she still knew it didn’t automatically mean the total win.

Chigs started to feel the pressure at this point, no longer having the easy-going look he had at the beginning of the final.

Next up was the last showstopper the contestants would face, taking the competition right to the final moments with no clear leader.

Mad Hatter’s Tea Party Display was the final showstopper challenge.

It was no small feat, with frantic energy taking over the tent almost immediately.

Yet Chigs took the lead with the showstopper results, marking an end to the show for another year. 

All three of the contestants had been isolated in the tent for two months, only receiving video calls from their families to connect to the outside world.

All three finalists got emotional during the last calls, with the weight of the competition now bearing down on their shoulders.

This was done because of the coronavirus pandemic, with the production wanting to protect the cast and crew.

Chigs admitted to finding it hard but did say that time had flown by during his time at Down Hall.

The Great British Bake Off is available to watch on All4.
