Controversy

Before the series started, there was speculation Paul Hollywood would not appear in the show after his marriage broke down.[18][19][20] Mary Berry, however, was said to have supported Hollywood over rumours of his possible sacking by BBC,[21] and the BBC later denied the rumours and said that his job is safe.[22]

During the series, there were accusations of favouritism towards female contestants after the last male contestant Glenn Cosby was eliminated from the show,[23] as well as allegations of Paul Hollywood's favouritism towards Ruby Tandoh,[24][25] and personal attacks on Tandoh by various people including the chef Raymond Blanc.[26][27][28] Both Paul Hollywood and Ruby Tandoh denied the accusation.[29][30]

Prior to the final, a rash of bets were placed on Frances Quinn to win. Bookmakers were forced to suspend the book after 90 percent of wagers were placed on Quinn, and led to accusation that show insiders or friends who knew of the result were placing bets on the outcome.[31] This subsequently led to many online media sources speculating Quinn had won, inadvertently leaking the result prematurely.

Post-show careers

Frances Quinn wrote a book, Quinntessential Baking, released on 17 August 2015.[32][33]

Ruby Tandoh has written a book, Crumb: The Baking Book, published on 25 September 2014.[34] She took half a year out from the university after the show, but has returned to complete her philosophy and history of art course at University College London.[35] She wrote a column on baking for The Guardian.[36]

Beca Lyne-Pirkis presented a Welsh language cookery show Becws for S4C starting 11 September 2014.[37][38]

Glenn Cosby left teaching, and launched his own touring stage show Bake it Big.[39][40]

Ali Imdad has set up a bakery business, and become a full-time baker.[41]

Ratings

The show achieved some of the highest ratings seen on BBC Two. According to overnight data, the final episode was seen by 9.1 million viewers at its peak, and averaging over 8 million, more than twice the number of viewers on BBC One and ITV.[42] This episode is the highest-rated show ever on BBC2 under the ratings system first introduced in 2002, beating the previous record set by an episode of Top Gear in 2007.[43] Series 4 had an average of viewing figure of 7.4 million.[44]
