Tonight, it’s the grand finale of that great, British baking competition, the Great British Bake Off! So, in celebration, we’ve decided to gather up the best lines, the very finest crumbs of wisdom, that our remaining three contestants, as well as Mary, Paul, Mel and Sue, utter in this final, amazing episode.

Don’t worry, though, nothing’s given away, there are no spoilers, and to make things more difficult we’ve not matched the quotes up to the people who said them.

There are 5 nuggets of knowledge from John, 4 precision-engineered soundbites from Brendan, 4 of James’ flustered exclamations, and one each from Paul and Mel, not to mention a mystery quote from a previous contestant!

Have a great bake tonight, and try to avoid a soggy bottom!
