The Great British Bake Off 2020 returned this Tuesday with Biscuit Week – who was eliminated?
Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood are once again back to judge The Great British Bake Off airing weekly Tuesday nights from 8PM on Channel 4.
Prue and Paul will be joined by GBBO hosts Noel Fielding and Matt Lucas in the tent.
The new 2020 season introduced 12 of the best budding bakers in the UK to the competition, going on a journey to knead, ice, bake, beat and whisk their way through 10 weeks of testing challenges.
At the end of each week judges Paul and Prue will name who’s going home and who is the week’s star baker.
Who left the Great British Bake Off this week?
Tonight it was crunch time for the eleven remaining bakers with Biscuit Week, kicking off with chocolate florentines – a sophisticated combination of fruit, nut and chocolate in the Signature challenge.
For the Technical, they had to produce coconut macaroons filled with chocolate and mango curd. Finally, their sculpting was put to the test in the Showstopper, as they created an elaborate table setting made entirely from biscuit.
In the results, it was Makbul ‘Mak’ Patel who was sent home while Dave Friday was crowned star baker of Biscuit Week.
Following Mak’s elimination, the ten bakers currently in the competition include 31-year-old Laura Adlington from Kent, 61-year-old Linda Rayfield from East Sussex, 20-year-old Peter Sawkins from Edinburgh, 55-year-old Rowan Williams from Worcestershire and 39-year-old Hermine from London.
They’re joined by 31-year-old Sura Selvarajah from London Sura Selvarajah, 31-year-old Lottie Bedlow from West Sussex, 32-year-old Mark Lutton from Liverpool, 51-year-old Marc Elliott from Cornwall Marc Elliott and 30-year-old Dave Friday from Hampshire .
The Great British Bake Off airs Tuesday nights at 8PM. Next week is Bread week.
