Great British Bake Off viewers slammed the final result on Tuesday when Matty was announced at the winner, with fans insisting Josh should have won.
Who won Great British Bake Off 2023?
Matty, a 28-year-old teacher, was crowned the Bake Off champion after he overcame competition from Josh and Dan to win the Channel 4 series.
While judges Paul Hollywood, 57, and Dame Prue Leith, 83, heaped praise on Matty after they chose him as the winner, some fans of the show were not so convinced.
Many fans think otherwise
Many took to social media to complain about the result, insisting it should have been Josh who won the show.
One person wrote: ‘They clearly wanted the person who would promote the show best to win. He’s definitely not the best baker, that’s Josh, but that’s tv.’
Someone else shared: ‘We all love it when the under dog wins & happy for Matty, but I feel for Josh, that trophy should have been his.’
‘I think Matty is such a lovely young man but I think Josh was robbed,’ wrote another viewer, while someone else posted: ‘Josh was robbed because Matty is a better fit for TV.’
Was Josh robbed in the Great British Bake Off champion?
Another show fan commented: ‘Not convinced the right baker was crowned this evening. Josh was my winner from Day 1. Excellent series to watch however…’
And someone else wrote: ‘Matty is a great bloke but based on what we’ve just seen, Josh was robbed.
‘I was rooting for Matty through the whole series (we’re from the same city) so I’m so happy for him. I am disappointed for Josh though because he had been the most consistent,’ noted someone else.
Someone else shared: ‘Well deserved win to Matty but Josh was always my winner.’
While another viewer wrote: ‘Happy for Matty but as usual the most marketable person wins. Josh clearly had the best bakes this week.’
‘Nooooo i’m actually gutted, Josh deserved to win so much,’ insisted another viewer.
