I think part of Ruby's problem is that she might be a sufferer of Bitchy Resting Face. Or Face-Like-A-Slapped-Arse Resting Face.

Mel and Sue are great. I love the constant double-entendres.

Team Kim!

I don't hate Ruby, she's just a bit pathetic and puts on the complete lack of confidence to make her end product look better. That and her being sooooo busy with her Philosophy degree has got to be a joke. (no offence intended to anyone studying philosophy, but come on)

Anyone but Ruby please.

Mind you the judges have a 100% track record of selecting the wrong winner so it's basically a done deal that Ruby will win.

Kimberley is the best baker there, and seems like a lovely human being to boot. She gowjus too.

On paper I'm liking Kimberley's wedding cake best...

...by the way are we supposed to be careful about spoilers here? :P

Ruby is kind of a disaster handling things just out of the oven...and oops @ that cake.

Kimberley makes it look effortless.

Frances's cake looks the best though. Kimberley second, but her tiers are a little more different than each other than Frances'.

While I thought Kimberly would win because she was the most rounded I'm quite glad Frances won.

She was my favourite.

Poor Ruby but Francis has improved all the way through the show. IN the end Kim was all bravado and she could just not pull it all together in the end.

Also the pretzel stuff was funny.

It's okay, Ruby, I will comfort you.

She was hilarious last week with chocolate all over her hands and apron, such a beautiful mess of a baker.

People need to learn to stay well away from the internet when they appear on something like this, and to not take nasty comments too seriously.

I don't like the way she has blamed misogyny for people not liking her and sending her hateful messages. She just comes across as vapid and utterly without personality. I make no bones about not liking Ruby, but I also thought either Frances or Kimberly would have been worthy winners, I think the latter just didn't produce the goods on the day it counted most.

Anyway, it's over, no more Bake Off for another year. :sob
