Great British Bake Off fans want to see MORE of Val Stones... especially her trip to Ayia Napa

She may have been given the boot from the Great British Bake Off in week five of the show, but fans are SO keen to see more of Val Stones.

Val stole our hearts with her dance moves while baking, her fears over not being let back into Yorkshire following a not-so-great Yorkshire Pudding bake and now, her baking holiday to Ayia Napa. Yes, really. We didn't know that was a thing either.

She made a brief return during the Bake Off final to give her predictions on the winner (Val picked Candice Brown and got it spot on), and Twitter was sent into overdrive by her appearance...

Fans are desperate to get Val back on our screens and it looks like they've come up with a number of ways for the BBC to make it a possibility.

At the end of Bake Off's finale episode, viewers were given an update on all the bakers and what they've been up to since the show, and after hearing that Val had one, been let back into Yorkshire and two, was headed off to Ayia Napa, it seemed to inspire some.

There were those Twitter users who called for the BBC to broadcast Val's time overseas:

There were those that wanted the BBC to make a Bake Off spinoff featuring *just* Val's best bits:

There were those that wanted a Bake Off: Revisited episode to get a glimpse of what Val got up to in Napa:

There were those that wanted the BBC to make a reality show for people to join Val in Ayia Napa:

And there were those that called for Val to become Bake Off's new host on Channel 4:

One thing is for sure, though, there was a lot of Val love being spread over social media.

While Val was arguably the star of this year's Great British Bake Off, Candice was crowned the winner.

After one last and very long stint - we're talking a three-tiered meringue (four, in Candice's case), a Victoria sponge cake, a chocolate cake, 12 sausage rolls, 12 savoury scones, 12 quiches and 12 fruit tarts - in the tent of dreams, Candice beat her rivals Jane Beedle and Andrew Smyth to bag herself the winning title and that coveted Bake Off trophy.

Gushing about their chosen winner Mary Berry said: "Candice has determination and passion. She has really excelled and everything always looked gorgeous!" Paul Hollywood added: "When she nails it, she's one of the best."

Candice, meanwhile, tweeted following her win: "I am grateful thankful and honoured! What a crazy few months! You will never know what's this means to me! 12 bakers now friends #GBBO."

Last night's final (26 October) was the final episode of Bake Off to air on BBC. The baking competition is set to move to Channel 4 next year, after the BBC lost the rights to the show.

It's going to be all change too, as Mary has decided to quit Bake Off, along with hosts Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins, out of loyalty to the BBC. Paul, meanwhile, has signed a three year deal with Channel 4 and will continue as a judge on the show.
