Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - Talk Tv -

KATE LYON, 29 Health and safety in­spec­tor from Mersey­side Only started rustling up tasty treats two years ago. Patchy performances led to calls from view­ers for Liam to be given a place in the fi­nal in­stead of her. Odds 7/1 Best mo­ment: “Hear­ing Prue say my cake was ‘the best cake she had ever tasted’. That was amaz­ing. What a com­pli­ment! I need to print that out and frame it for my wall.” Worst mo­ment: “The other bak­ers be­came friends so it goes with­out say­ing that it was the hard­est part.” STEVEN CARTER-BAILEY, 34 Mar­keter from Buck­ing­hamshire Early favourite Steven has pro­duced one show­stop­ping bake af­ter an­other but some of his cre­ations haven’t passed the taste test with the judges, like his rub­bery tri­fle ter­rine. Tops the Star Baker leader­board, win­ning the ti­tle three times. Odds 6/5 Best mo­ment: “The first day. There was so much ex­cite­ment in the group and we were fi­nally able to talk freely about Bake Off af­ter months of se­crets and si­lence.” Worst mo­ment: “Ev­ery time a friend went home at the end of each week.” SO­PHIE FALDO, 33 Trainee stunt­woman from Sur­rey For­mer Army of­fi­cer So­phie has been qui­etly get­ting on with the busi­ness of reach­ing the fi­nal, with con­sis­tently solid bakes. Her military back­ground means she stays cool and col­lected in the kitchen. Odds 8/11 Best mo­ment: “Get­ting a hand­shake on my first chal­lenge. It made me realise I might be good enough to be there af­ter all!” Worst mo­ment: “Week 8, For­got­ten Bakes. It was the first time I had to ac­cept there was a good chance I’d be go­ing home. But I pulled it out of the bag on the sec­ond day.”
