The Great British Bake Off 2018 final is here with a new winner - but what are all the previous GBBO winners doing now?

With the new series of The Great British Bake Off final upon us we're about to get a new GBBO winner - but what are all the previous winners up to?

The winners from other series have gone on to get book deals, shows of their own and even baked for the Queen.

Here's the full GBBO winner's list and what they're up to now:

Series one winner Edd won all the way back in 2010. 

Before GBBO he was a debt collector, but was able to quit after his victory. 

He has since written three cookbooks of his own, starred on the Alan Titchmarsh show, and started his own podcast titled The Boy What Bakes.
