The winner of Great British Bake Off has just been announced
And the winner is...
Do we need to say spoiler alert?
After weeks of impressive creations, the winner of this year's Great British Bake Off has finally been announced.
It's a huge congratulations for Sophie who was crowned this year's champ tonight.
After being put to the test during a bread-making round and later being challenged with ginger biscuits, the contestants pulled out all the stops for the final Showstopper of the season.
Sophie and Katie both impressed the judges with their creations, while Simon, unfortunately, left a bitter taste after his presentation failed to impress.
The reaction on Twitter was mostly positive, although many were not surprised as Sophie had been consistently strong throughout the series.

And Sophie! Also thoroughly deserved. An evening of the right people winning. A rarity in 2017 #GBBO

The official news might not come as a huge shock to everyone after new judge Prue Leith accidentally let slip this year's winner earlier today.
The new judge of the show sent the accidental tweet earlier today announcing the winner before the show had even aired.
She said, "No one told me judging a #GBBO final would be so emotional. I wanted them all to win. Bravo Sophie."
The tweet was quickly deleted but not before people spotted it and reacted to it. Even a high profile journalist in the UK went as far as to quote tweeting it for everyone else to see.

People were rightly outraged at the huge spoiler, however, thankfully many managed to avoid the reveal and enjoy the final live.
