Great British Bake Off spoilers: Contestants’ prowess with pastry put to the test

GBBO spoilers

Contestants on the Great British Bake Off 2017 tonight are aiming for pastry perfection.


Following last week’s latest pastry challenges, this evening sees the seven remaining bakers given a Great British Bake Off face three more tricky tasks.

Restaurateur, food writer and novelist Prue Leith is once again joining Paul Hollywood as judge of The Great British Bake Off as it continues tonight on Channel 4.

And as always, Prue and Paul will be joined by new GBBO hosts Sandi Toksvig OBE and Noel Fielding.

They’ll be ready with a pertinent pep talk, a helpful hand or just a sympathetic shoulder to cry on, for what is series 8 of the cooking competition.

Over 10 weeks, the Great British Bake Off 2017 will see 12 of the best amateur bakers in Britain whisk, knead, ice, beat and bake their way through classic British cakes, perfect patisserie, Italian delights, sticky caramel constructions and elaborate layered puddings.


Tonight it’s week six of The Great British Bake Off and just seven bakers remain after last Tuesday’s fifth elimination.

Judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood have put together three tough challenges that will really test the remaining seven bakers’ prowess with pastry.

There’s a savoury signature, where they must impress with style and substance; a multi-layered technical; and an ambitious final challenge, in which the bakers are pushed to the edge with a traditional pie.

Also, Sandi heads abroad to discover how some unusual habits have inspired a classic pastry treat.

As always, the three challenges will sort out the best bakers from those who are failing to make the grade.

At the end of it all, only one can claim star baker; while another contestant will leave the tent for good.


Who will be the next to leave the Great British Bake Off 2017?

The Great British Bake Off airs tonight at 8PM on Channel 4.
