Who Will Win The Great British Bake Off?
© PA

After nine weeks of sumptuous Showstoppers and soggy bottoms, a dozen amateur bakers have been whittled down to a final three ahead of The Great British Bake Off's final on Tuesday night. 

The finale looks fairly evenly poised after the three bakers, Dan, Josh and Matty, were each named Star Baker twice throughout the 14th series of the Channel 4 show. 

But there is a clear favourite on betting sites, with Josh expected to rise to the occasion. 

Unlike many other reality TV shows, this trio have not been in it for the huge cash prize - because there isn't one. 

The blessed baker who triumphs on Tuesday night will be the lucky recipient of a branded cake stand and a bouquet of flowers. 

But for these three lads, hearing judges Paul Hollywood and Dame Prue Leith name them as the winner will mean much more than receiving a load of dough. 

The trio have put their blood, sweat and tears into their bakes throughout the series - which has been hosted by Alison Hammond and Noel Fielding - and the final isn't likely to be a piece of cake.

Worthy Favourite Josh 

Josh tops the market with Great British Bake Off 2023 betting sites and the research associate is going into the final in fine form after being named Star Baker in last week's Patisserie Week semi-final, after being awarded the same honour in Week Six's Botanicals Week.

He has really grown throughout the contest and has made consistently good Showstoppers.

Unlike the other two finalists, Josh hasn't been considered for the Bake Off boot throughout the series and there has only been two weeks out of the nine when he hasn't either won Star Baker or been praised as one of the judges' favourite bakers that week, which has happened five times.

Paul even dished out one of his trademark Hollywood Handshakes to Josh in Week Two for the star's Showstopper - his "burger and fries" biscuits. 

Josh is the worthy 2/1 favourite to be crowned Bake Off winner, but Dan isn't far behind him in the betting.  

Dan's Full Circle Journey 

Dan was the Star Baker way back in Week One, so it would be fitting if he could come full circle and secure victory in the final. 

He was Star Baker again in Week Seven, but the following week he was one of the judges' least favourite performers.

While the resource planner wasn't in the conversation to go in last week's semi-final after impressing, when he received a Hollywood Handshake for his Parisian financier cakes, he might just miss out on final glory. 

Dan is 4/1 second favourite on specials betting sites, but it wouldn't be a huge surprise if he pipped Josh in the finale.

Matty's Rollercoaster Ride

Matty has had a rollercoaster ride to the final, but he deserves his place in the last three. It's been an up and down couple of weeks for Matty, who only just survived last week when Tasha exited in the semis.  

But the week before he was being lauded as the Star Baker in Party Bakes Week, when he received a Hollywood Handshake for his chilli sausage rolls.

Matty was also Star Baker four weeks into the contest in Chocolate Week, but could Tuesday night's final be one bake too far for him? 

He is the 6/1 outsider with betting apps to triumph, but the PE teacher has every chance of scoring a last-minute Bake Off victory.
