My geek chic crush has almost made it to the finishing line. Bake, James, bake!

Forgive me for getting a little bit emotional here, but my fave programme of the autumn is almost over.

Yes, The Great British Bake Off is close to being dished out for another series.

What am I going to do this time next week? Maybe I’ll start furiously baking to make up for it.

Or, like every little thing that reminds you of your ex after an especially bad break-up, will cake be that reminder that will send me into a spiral of depression each time I see it? (Er, no. You’ll find me in Greggs.)

Luckily, the show’s sexiest contestant ever, James Morton, is through to the final after sailing through the ‘patisserie’ round last night.

Dressed in the best knitwear ever, he’s stolen the hearts of baking fans nationwide.

Don’t you just want to cuddle him? I do. He looks so… huggable.

The Scottish hunk in a knit is up against equally amazing-at-baking (but not quite SO sexy) contestants Brendan and John in the final.

Yep, I am definitely going to be comfort eating come next Thursday. Cake. And lots of it. I’m blaming you when I can’t fit into my party dresses at Christmas, James.

But good luck, you lovely man.

I’ll never forget you, you beautiful Scottish baking whizz.
