The bakers seem to have been pretty close friends since the start, and have bonded as they made it through each week.
However episode 6 saw the Bake Off say goodbye to Mark, which led Lottie to tears as they hugged and said their farewells.
They were seen sharing banter and trying to do better than each other in the signature challenge. It looked like Channel 4’s cameras kept getting their smiling reactions to each other’s bakes too!

Are Lottie and Mark dating?
Mark lives in Liverpool with his wife Laura. Although Mark and Lottie got along, it looks like it was purely just friendship!
Since leaving the Bake Off tent, Mark publicly thanked his wife on Instagram, who he said “gave him the confidence to apply for GBBO, recipe inspirations, and the motivation to continue at the hardest times”.
And judging by Lottie’s Instagram account, she is currently single.
It looks like she’s kept in touch with her fellow bakers, such as Marc and Laura, who she has shared pictures with on her Instagram.
