Last week’s semi-final saw fan favourite Jürgen bow out being the only one not to receive a Hollywood handshake, while Chigs, Chrystelle and Giuseppe made history by doing so all in the same challenge.
After nine weeks and eliminations, the three remaining amateur bakers will now battle it out for the Bake Off crown. They will be cooking up a carrot cake, a technical based on a Belgian recipe and a showstopping banquet.
GamesMaster returns after an almost 20 year hiatus for more game reviews and gameplay challenges.
First airing on Channel 4 in 1992, Trevor McDonald will pick up from where the late Sir Patrick Moore left off, beaming in as the almighty hologram, Games Master, to set the challenges. Also presenting are Robert Florence, Frankie Ward and Ty Logan.
The first episode is available to watch now on the E4 YouTube channel.
F Is For Family
Michael Price and Bill Burr bring their animated comedy F Is For Family to a close with a fifth and final series.
The dysfunctional Murphys are back to ring in the holidays in the late autumn of 1974, but Frank (Burr) and his family will first have to come to terms with the death of his abusive father, William.
Sue (Laura Dern) busies herself making amends with her own family, Kevin (Justin Long) clings to his girlfriend Alice (Jamie Denbo), and meanwhile there’s also a new addition to the family to adjust to.
The last two episodes are set in Christmas week and the finale on Christmas Day, “so the world can spend the holiday season watching a family having a worse Christmas than them!” said Price to whats-on-netflix.com.
Channel 4, 9.00pm
The grand final of the 12th series sees Guz Khan indulging his chocoholism, Victoria Coren Mitchell deciphering Alan Davies’ body movements and Desiree Burch writing a persuasive tune for Alex Horne.
Also competing for the golden bust of Greg Davies’ mug is Morgana Robinson.
