GREAT British Bake Off 2021’s grand prize has been revealed – but it might not blow you away.

Viewers were thrilled tonight as the hit baking show returned with 12 new faces.


The selected bakers will be looking to make an instant impact as they test their skills in he famous white tent.

But what will the winner of GBBO take home after spending 10 gruelling weeks trying to impress Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith?

The prize is in fact a cake stand and some flowers.

Although some viewers may not be bowled over by this, the winner also receives the pride of being crowned the champion of GBBO.

Former winners of the Bake Off also received significant publicity, which helped them advance their career in the cooking industry.

Earlier this year, we revealed Nadiya Hussain has amassed a near £5m fortune, having presented various shows on the BBC since she won in 2015, as well as publishing a string of successful books.

The Queen of cakes (okay maybe the Princess, after Mary Berry) has gone from strength to strength since she won GBBO in 2015. 

With a personality as warm as freshly baked bread, Nadiya has presented eight TV series, including BBC2’s The Big Family Cooking Showdown and regularly appeared as a panellist on Loose Women, to mention just a few. 

Nadiya, 36, has sold nearly 600,000 books, including cookbooks, her autobiography and two children’s books. 

Her bestsellers – Nadiya Bakes, Time to Eat, Nadiya’s British Food Adventure and Nadiya’s Family Favourites – are likely to have earned £1.1m, with another £750,000 from her other titles. 

One of her stand-out moments was baking the Queen's 90th birthday cake.

Meanwhile, John Waite was named GBBO champion in 2012, when he was just a nipper aged 23. 

He regularly appears on cooking slots on ITV1’s This Morning and Lorraine, as well as Channel 4’s Packed Lunch. 

And we’ll soon be seeing him swapping cheesecakes for the Cha Cha Cha as he’ll be the first ever male Strictly star to be paired with a same-sex partner. 

Similarly, Candice Brown has carved out a nice slice of the Bake Off pie.

She and her brother Ben have bought a pub, the Green Man in Eversholt, Bedfordshire, and Candice has set up a media company since becoming champion in 2016. 

The pouting pub owner, known on the show for her varying shades of lipstick, has carved out a nice slice of the Bake Off pie.

She and her brother Ben have bought a pub, the Green Man in Eversholt, Bedfordshire, and Candice has set up a media company since becoming champion in 2016. 

Matt Lucas and Noel Fielding return to host the show once again.

The judges also remain the same with Paul and Prue making the decisions as to who gets Star Baker and who leaves the tent each week.

You can catch it at 8pm on Channel 4 each and every week.
