The Great British Bake Off viewers are already calling for series winner Sophie Faldo and finalist Steven Carter-Bailey to return to screens in their own show.
Since filming the programme earlier in the year, the pair have become “best baking friends forever” and are planning a baking-themed trip to Scandinavia together.
Viewers pitched their plans as a new programme idea on their behalf following the Channel 4 series final on Tuesday night.
They took to Twitter to make their petition after catching up with the pair in a brief heart-warming segment at the end of the episode, which saw Faldo crowned winner.
“Any chance of this being a little series?” asked one viewer. “I’d love to watch them eating their way around Scandinavia #GBBO.”
Another suggested: “A book deal together please… different slant on the next GBBO Winners book deal.”

One said: “Can’t wait for Sophie and Steven to do the Great British Gay Best Friend Bake Off. Down. For. That. #GBBO.”
Taking the idea even further, one pleaded: “Can I go on that holiday with them? Visiting bakeries and seeing the #northernlights would be great.”

Viewers were also delighted to see a reunion between former contestants Yan and Julia, who visited Flo in Liverpool and sent in a clip of themselves using cooking utensils for a car karaoke session.
“After that Bake Off ‘where are they now’ bit I need to see a Yan/Julia/Flo road trip series,” said one person, and another hinted: “Eurovision next then!!”

One added: “If Yan and Julia going to visit flo isn’t the cutest thing to come out of bake off I don’t know what is,” while another said: “A karaoke road trip with Yan, Julia and Flo #squadgoals. When are we seeing this spin off? #GBBO.”
Applications are already open for hopeful amateur bakers who would like to put their skills to the test on next year’s show.
