The Great British Bake Off 2020 was back this evening with bread week – who was eliminated?
Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood are once again back to judge The Great British Bake Off airing weekly on Tuesday evenings from 8PM on Channel 4.
Paul and Prue are again accompanied by GBBO hosts Noel Fielding and Matt Lucas in the tent for episode three this evening.
The new 2020 season introduced 12 of the best amateur bakers in Britain to the competition, going on a journey to whisk, bake, ice, knead and beat their way through ten weeks of challenges.
At the end of each episode judges Paul and Prue will decide who’s leaving the tent and who is the week’s star baker.
Tonight (October 6) it was Bread Week, and the remaining bakers had a lot to prove with three tough challenges.
First up they had to bake two flavoured soda bread loaves – one sweet and one savoury – as well as create their own butter. For the technical challenge, the bakers had to make six rainbow coloured bagels.
For the showstopper, the bakers had to showcase their artistic skills as they were asked to render decorative designs in bread.
At the end of the challenges, Marc Elliott was crowned star baker while it was Rowan Williams who was eliminated and sent home from the tent.
Following Rowan’s exit, the bakers currently in the show include 31-year-old Lottie Bedlow from West Sussex, 51-year-old Marc Elliott from Cornwall, 30-year-old Dave Friday from Hampshire, 32-year-old Mark Lutton from Liverpool, 31-year-old Laura Adlington from Kent, 39-year-old Hermine from London.
They’re joined by 61-year-old Linda Rayfield from East Sussex, 20-year-old Peter Sawkins from Edinburgh and 31-year-old Sura Selvarajah from London Sura Selvarajah.
The Great British Bake Off 2020 returns next Tuesday evening from 8PM on Channel 4.
Together with the main show spin-off An Extra Slice returns hosted by Jo Brand with guests, airing on Friday nights on Channel 4.
This week Jo is joined by judge Paul Hollywood, presenter and comedian Judi Love and comedian Aisling Bea to discuss the best bits from the week and take a look at some exclusive unseen footage from the show.
