With the terrifying ‘Bread Week’ now behind us, the odds have changed on who is likely to be crowned this year’s Great British Bake Off champion.
Here’s how things stand at the moment.
What are the latest GBBO odds?
Following the departure of Amelia at the end of week three – which was Bread Week – Michael has shot straight into the lead.
Ladbrokes is offering the below odds:
Michelle – 5/1
Rosie – 4/1
David – 5/1

Helena – 20/1
A Ladbrokes spokesperson said: “After Michael received the first Hollywood handshake of the series, he’s risen straight to the top of the betting.”
Who was Bread Week’s star baker, what were the challenges and who left the tent?
For the signature challenge, the bakers needed to produce a tear & share loaf, followed by burger baps and veggie burgers for the technical.
The Bread Week showstopper challenge demanded a decorative loaf display.
This week’s star baker was Michael.
The 26-year-old theatre manager and fitness instructor from Stratford-upon-Avon also received the first ‘Hollywood Handshake’ of the series for his Keralan star tear & share bread during the signature challenge.
Meanwhile, the bakers said goodbye to Amelia who became the third person to be sent home.
The 24-year-old fashion designer from London struggled in all three challenges and was seen in tears as she said her goodbyes.
