IT's the final of the Great British Bake Off tonight when the last three will battle it out.

But who will be this year's top baker? We took to the streets to ask Daily Echo readers.

Ita Kelly, 67, of Nightingale Walk, Netley, said: “I cry every week when somebody gets eliminated because it’s emotional. I’m going for Brendan because he’s my age group and my parents are both Irish.”

Mother-of-one Stephanie Power, 35, a youth worker from Gosport, wants James to win. She said: “It inspires me to go out and make some delicious cakes and biscuits.”

Julia Veal, 58, of Mortimer Close, Netley, who hopes James wins, said: “I think it’s great as it’s three men in the final, all from different walks of life and age groups.”

Ken Byatt, 89, of Hythe Marina, said: “It’s good to get people cooking at home because a lot of the younger generation don’t get taught by their mums.”
