Each week hopefuls have been taking part in challenges in the hopes of impressing the judges and being crowned Star Baker, but after last week's semi-final just three bakers remain.

Here is when is the Bake Off final will be on, which bakers remain and how you can watch.

Who are the hosts of The Great British Bake Off?

Comedian Noel Fielding returned to host the beloved show alongside TV personality and presenter Alison Hammond. She was no stranger to the tent having appeared as a baker on Celebrity Bake Off in 2020 alongside James Blunt, Alex Jones, and Joe Sugg.

Hammond is replacing comedian Matt Lucas who stepped down at the end of last year after two series. She joins the likes of Sandi Toskvig, who left the show in 2020, Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins.

Where is Bake Off filmed?

The Great British Bake Off - or Great British Baking Show, for Americans - is filmed at Welford Park in Berkshire.

The iconic tent is pitched during spring with filming lasting around ten weeks.

While there was one Scottish baker who took part in series 14, alongside the first ever deaf baker, only three of the twelve contestants have made it to the final.

After nine weeks of baking, just Dan, Josh and Matty remain.

After travelling South America in 2007 Dan came home with an interest in cooking – particularly pies and puddings. His mother-in-law taught him how to make perfect shortcrust pastry, with his love of pies eventually growing into a wider interest in patisserie. Dan has impressed the judges with his unique flavour compositions, and even received a Hollywood Handshake for a bake which used one of Paul's least favourite ingredients, matcha.

Josh

Chemist Josh will bring scientific precision to the kitchen, and as much as he enjoys experimenting and taking notes on each step of his process, often taking classics and giving them a modern twist. Josh is one of the most consistent bakers in the tent and has routinely impressed the judges with his baking skills, particularly when he takes inspiration from his late nan.

Matty

PE and science teacher from Cambridgeshire

Matty is a baker with a goal: to equal the teddy-bear cake his late nan made him for his fourth birthday which sparked his love of baking. His time in the Bake Off tent has been marked with unique creations, such as his West Ham bake though he has been one of the most improved bakers of the competition by far.
