Three incredible contestants have baked their way into the final and are hoping to lift the winner's plate.

Syabira, 32, was born and grew up in Malaysia, but moved to the UK in 2013 to study for her PhD and is now settled here. She only began baking in 2017, but her unusual flavour combinations and celebrations of Malaysian food have seen her win star baker three times and put her in line as the favourite to win.

Abdul, 29, is an electronics engineer who was raised in Saudi Arabia but now lives in the UK, where he took up baking along with his colleagues to brighten up their coffee breaks. He is the final wild card as until the semi-final, he was the only contestant not to have won star baker.

Judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood have set this year's final challenges to a theme - celebrating the planet.

In the signature bake, finalists must create a picnic featuring seasonal ingredients and including sandwiches, pies and cakes.

The last technical challenge sees the final three take on a summer classic, while the showstopper gives them one more chance to create an edible celebration of the planet that should be the pinnacle of their competition.

Viewers can also expect to see the traditional garden party, with all 12 contestants and the finalists' loved ones in attendance as the winner is crowned.
