Controversy rises prior to Great British Bake Off final

GBBO's Kate Lyon inundated with marriage proposals- but she's got a boyfriend

Prue Leith tweeted in anticipation of tonight's finale: "No-one told me judging a GBBO final would be so emotional".

According to the Press Association, Leith is in Bhutan and tweeted the name of the victor because she got her timezones mixed up.

In her now-deleted tweet, Leith said she "wanted [all three finalists] to win" before saying "bravo" to one of them.Leith replaced veteran chef Mary Berry on the show after the latter opted to remain with the BBC when the show moved over to Channel 4.

Prue has since spoken out about her upset regarding the blunder to the Press Association, admitting that she was in a "state" over her mistake.

"I think I am pretty cool, calm and collected".

First President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and then his former campaign foreign policy advisor . The investigation into Podesta and his firm initially started when Manafort's finances were examined by Mueller's unit.

The former Army officer beat fellow finalists Steven Carter-Bailey and Kate Lyon to the top spot after she wowed the judges this evening with a slew of culinary creations. I don't mind working under pressure, so being in the tent working under time restraints and the hot weather made me more focused and better organised.

Throughout the 30 bakes she has presented on the show, Faldo was twice named star baker and has received the coveted Hollywood handshake.

Sophie said: 'I'm sure it will sink in, but it hasn't quite yet. It would be wonderful to write a patisserie book, but let's see what comes my way.

Prue, co-judge Paul Hollywood and presenters Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding will all return for GBBO next year.

The Great British Bake Off is available to watch on Channel 4's catch-up service All4.
