The Great Celebrity Bake Off 2022: episode five – as it happened

And in the words of Tracy-Ann: “If you don’t love yourself then nobody else is ever going to love you.” At least, I think that’s right.

It’s been a wonderful season, and so fun to spend with you all. I’m reliably informed that filming for the next series of Bake Off is imminent, so I hope we’ll see you all again later in the year. In the meantime, you can always find Scott here and me here! Take good care of yourselves x

A big THANK YOU for reading this liveblog, for all of your wonderful comments and messages to both Michael and I. It has been a hoot to be with you each and every week, and it was made even more enjoyable every time Michael lost it when a handshake was dished out for an underwhelming signature. Wait, that last part was something I was thinking and shouldn’t have been writing.

I can’t believe it. I honestly, honestly can’t believe it. We were SO CLOSE!

Final moments aside, what a good episode to end the celeb series on – some genuinely great bakes, and some absolutely awful ones. Mawaan’s disintegrating Showstopper joins James Acaster’s wet flapjacks (“bon appetit”) and KSI’s upturned open-topped pie in the history books of celeb disasters.

AND SHE GOT A HANDSHAKE. JUST TO ANNOY MICHAEL.

NOT! NO NO NO!

Overall, she probably did deserve it. She tried the hardest and did the most complex bake this episode.

And the winner is … ELLIE

I predict Ellie Goulding will win – she’s been the most adventurous throughout, hasn’t she? What do you think BTL?

And also just as important – Derry Girls is on in 10 minutes.

The Paul Hollywood death mask will haunt my dreams tonight

Ellie’s done fairly well, I think? It’s hard to say considering we’ve never seen the bar simultaneously so high (Sophie) and so low (Mawaan)

Sophie’s biscuit portrait would be right at home on a regular season. An absolute treat.

Baking is art. Art is baking.

What a tremendous @KathyBurke creation from @SophMorgTV! #GBBO pic.twitter.com/dNmNLhIJtH

Tracy-Ann’s RuPaul has a touch of the medusa about it. Don’t look it directly in the eyes. Or the feet-hands.

It appears Mawaan is making an ancient Egyptian death mask for Paul. I’m both impressed and horrified.
