Bake Off fans divided as Steven bakes his way to the top again
Some say it was an unfair win while others are already tipping Steven for GBBO winner.
Fans of The Great British Bake Off have been left torn after contestant Steven was crowned star baker for a second week running.
The 42-year-old from Hertfordshire, whose mum first taught him to bake as a child, stole Tuesday night’s episode with his stunning showstopper chess board made entirely from biscuits.
His efforts in all three challenges – including the tricky fortune cookie technical – allowed him to keep the star baker crown, making him the show’s only one so far.
But the coveted accolade divided viewer opinions, with some saying that other hopefuls were equally deserving.
One fan Tweeted: “Don’t think he should have been star baker off just his showstopper … others baked all three tasks well but were overlooked!”
