Where did Liam Charles come in Bake Off?

Despite consistently strong performances throughout the show, Liam Charles left the show after episode eight.

Falling just short of the semi-finals, Charles came unstuck trying to a cook a tricky Cumberland Rum Nicky technical.

Given his popularity throughout the series, fans were understandably sad to see him go. However, the then-19-year-old had made a real name for himself during his time on the show.

Who won Bake Off Season 8?

Despite Liam Charles’ best efforts, the 2017 Great British Bake Off title actually went to Sophie Faldo.

The then-33-year-old former army officer and stunt woman seemed an unlikely winner to some, as she remained consistently mid-table throughout the show’s opening weeks.

However, at the business end of the competition, Faldo really came into her own, winning two Star Baker awards, as well as the coveted title itself.

Given her increasingly impressive performances, many people assumed Faldo was the favourite heading into the final.

However, all pretense of suspense was ruined when Prue Leith accidentally confirmed Faldo’s victory via tweet.

It’s hard to imagine a more emphatic victory in Bake Off history than one that was mistakenly announced half a day early.
