Great British Bake Off contestant Laura Adlington revealed she feels ‘proud’ to make the final despite her ‘setbacks’ on the show.
Laura will compete in the final tonight, alongside Peter Sawkins and Dave Friday, where she will battle it out to be crowned the 2020 winner.
Taking to Instagram ahead of the show, Laura shared a video of her most memorable moments during the competition – ranging from her baking mishaps to being crowned ‘Star Baker’.
‘I can’t put into words how lucky I feel to be in the final alongside Peter and Dave — two incredible bakers who I’m proud to call my friends,’ she penned.
‘I may not be the neatest or the most refined baker, but I put my heart and soul into absolutely everything I make.’
The budding baker went on to thank her fans for their support, as she added: Despite a lot of setbacks I never gave up, and I’m really proud of myself for that. Thank you to everyone who has believed in me and supported me over the past 10 weeks. It has meant so much to me.’
Laura’s followers rushed to comment on her post to wish her good luck for the final – including a number of former Bake Off stars.
Bake Off winner Dr Rahul Mandal commented: ‘You are an amazing baker an incredible baker. Never doubt yourself, you are great!! Good luck!’
‘Proud of you, love,’ Michael Chakraverty added.
While Steph Blackwell, a Bake Off finalist from 2019 and former contestant Michelle Evans-Fecci simply posted a heart emoji.
During last week’s semi-final, Laura was forced to step in to remind viewers that it wasn’t her fault that Hermine was given the boot by judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith.
Breaking her silence on the mountain of backlash, the finalist encouraged disgruntled fans to be kind.
‘It’s ok to be sad your favourite person didn’t go through, but please remember it’s not my fault,’ Laura penned on Twitter.
‘I don’t make the decisions. GBBO is all about kindness and I haven’t seen much of that on here.’
Great British Bake Off airs tonight at 8pm on Channel 4.
