The Great British Bake Off 2019 continues tonight with a Bake Off classic: Pastry week.
Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood are back once again to judge The Great British Bake Off which continues Tuesday nights at 8PM on Channel 4.
As usual, Prue and Paul will be joined by GBBO hosts Sandi Toksvig OBE and Noel Fielding in the tent.
The new season of Bake Off has welcomed 13 of the best amateur bakers in Britain to the show, going on a journey to whisk, knead, ice, beat and bake their way through classic British cakes, perfect patisserie, Danish delights, sticky caramel constructions and elaborate layered puddings.
In order to take the Bake Off Crown, they must master 30 carefully designed challenges by judges Paul and Prue to test their limits.
Last week’s episode had a Festivals theme and saw Henry Bird crowned star baker for the very first time.
But it was Michael Chakraverty who was sent home after failing to impress Prue and Paul.
Tonight, it’s week eight and just five bakers remain.
It’s a classic Bake Off theme, Pastry Week, and the Signature challenge is a savoury take on a French classic.
There’s a multi-layered Moroccan Technical, and a towering Showstopper that requires not only an expertise with pastry, but also a solid grasp of structural engineering.
With a place in the semi-final at stake, who will win the coveted Star Baker title? And who will leave the Bake Off tent?
Those left in the competition at the quarter final stages are 28-year-old Geography Teacher from London, Alice Fevronia; 36-year-old International Health Adviser from London, David Atherton; and 20-year-old student from Durham, Henry Bird.
They’re joined by 28-year-old Veterinary Surgeon from Somerset, Rosie Brandreth-Poynter; and 28-year-old Shop Assistant from Chester, Steph Blackwell.
Watch all the action from the tent and see who leaves when the Great British Bake Off 2019 returns to TV tonight (October 15) from 8PM on Channel 4.
Meanwhile, The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice with Jo Brand, is back on Friday nights on Channel 4 with the latest eliminated baker.
