GBBO fans believe Kim-Joy was 'robbed' of a victory during last night's finale, after Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood chose to crown Rahul ultimate star baker.
Rahul struggled with the doughnut and pitta bread challenges set by the judges in the first and second rounds.
He also had to be given an extra 15 minutes when a glass mason jar exploded during the showstopper in the heat, meaning he had to start baking all over again but impressed with the end result.
Kim-Joy placed first in the technical pitta bread challenge which saw the bakers cooking on open fires outside the tent, wowing the judges with her selection of dips.
But it wouldn't be a final without any fix claims either, and hordes of angry fans have taken to Twitter to claim that Kim-Joy had been 'robbed' from a Great British Bake Off champion title.
"Justice for Kim-Joy! She was robbed," declared one viewer.
And somebody else added: "KIM-JOY WAS ROBBED. SHE IS THE REAL WINNER."
"Great British Bake Off?! More like Great British Snake Off! Kim-Joy was robbed and Rahul should have been out weeks ago. This is definitely a fix," fumed a third.
Nope. Sorry. I don't accept that result. Ruby & Kim-Joy were robbed. What a joke. #GBBOFinal- Stewart Thurlow (@StewartThurlow) October 30, 2018

Kim-Joy was my winner, consistent baker and all her bakes were beautifully decorated. Tonight she was the best baker & deserved to win. Feels like she was robbed :cry: #GBBOFinal- Lucy Moggridge (@LuluMojo) October 30, 2018
Thankfully, Kim-Joy herself was a little more gracious as the result was announced, saying: "I am so, so pleased for Rahul but I'll just tell people that I was in the final."
She also congratulated Rahul on Twitter last night, sharing: "Congratulations Rahul!! I am so happy to have got to the final and I am just so proud of us all."
I didn't win - but I'm the happiest I've ever been. I've learnt so much about baking and have become so much more confident. AND I've made 11 amazing new friends! Thank you to everyone who has supported me along the way, it means the world :sparkling_heart: THANK YOU #gbbo https://t.co/T3OLgRcV42- Kim-Joy (@kimjoyskitchen) October 30, 2018
