Paul Hollywood says 'The Great British Bake Off' is set for a "fantastic" final.
The Bake Off judge has said viewers can expect a thrilling last show - in which hopefuls Richard Burr, Nancy Birtwistle and Luis Troyano will battle it out to be crowned king of the BBC One baking competition - and revealed the competition is "very close".
The bakers will be tasked with making a Viennoiserie, undertaking an instruction free technical challenge and ending on a spectacular Piece Montee show stopper, with Paul, 48, singing nothing but praise for all the hopefuls ahead of the final.
He said of five-time star baker winner Richard: "He is the precision baker, a typical builder with his pencil behind the ear. When he nails it he is bang on. Going into the Bake Off final he is very strong."
He added of "consistent" Nancy: "One of the most consistent people we have ever had on Bake Off, she has never ever been in the danger zone, all of the others have been. She has just been there all the way along and the final was built for her."
However both contestants face stiff competition from "innovator" Louis who is described as one of the most artistic 'Bake Off' hopefuls ever.
Paul told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "He is the creative one the great innovator, he comes up with flavour combinations that are frankly, divine. He has slipped a couple of times but he has been fairly consistent, but he has dropped on some of his ideas. Artistically he is up there, one of the top ever."
'The Great British Bake Off' final airs tonight (08.10.14) on BBC One at 8pm.
