Clothes designer Frances Quinn has beaten former model Ruby Tandoh and psychologist Kimberley Wilson after she was crowned the winner of the fourth series of The Great British Bake Off.
Quinn, who said that she was in complete and utter shock after she was announced as the winner, managed to impress the judges; Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood with her three-tier wedding cake that was inspired by Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
The final episode gave the show its highest ratings for in years peaking at 9.1 million.
Quinn, who had to keep the great news a secret since recording the final episode during the summer said: "I've been back at work and trying to keep a poker face.”
"I remember watching the Wimbledon final the following week and getting so emotional... and thinking at least Andy Murray doesn't have to hide his trophy under his bed for the next three months."
Meanwhile, Hollywood said: "She not only gave us the style, she gave us the substance too and that cake actually, each layer, superb.”
Fellow judge Berry added: "She has attention to detail, she's got excellent flavours, her baking improved as each week went by. We're very proud of her."
