The GBBO final saw a nail biting finish with each baker being asked to make Carrot Cake, Belgian Buns and a Mad Hatter's Tea Party Showstopper.

But there could only be one winner and that was Giuseppe Dell'Anno.

The Italian engineer who is based in Bristol wowed the judges with his showstopper of Italian desserts including a panna cotta.

Paul Hollywood said of the new winner, “The first time I walked into the tent and in the first signature I saw his mini rolls, I thought that looks like our winner, you could see the heart and soul going into his baking. He has done an incredible job.”

Prue Leith added, “He is such a classic beautiful baker and he represents a long tradition of classic Italian baking he has done it brilliantly all the way through.

Giuseppe was left speechless as he took it all in, commenting There are no words, I’m speechless for once.’

He continued, "All I can think of is the reaction from my mum and dad. The fact is that everything I have done to deserve this comes from his heritage, it's the best thank you note I can possibly send him."

Giuseppe Dell'Anno has been crowned the winner of the Great British Bake Off.

"He is going through a very bad time health wise, so I think this is going to be a great boost. I don't say often or lightly that I am proud of what I do, but in this case I am really proud of what I have done. It's unbelievable!"
