The Great British Bake Off 2020 continued this evening (October 20) with the classic Pastry Week – who was sent home?
Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith are back as judges on The Great British Bake Off which is airing Tuesday nights at 8PM on Channel 4.
Prue and Paul are joined by GBBO hosts Matt Lucas and Noel Fielding in the tent for the show’s new series.
The 2020 season welcomed twelve of the best amateur bakers in the UK to the show, going on a journey to beat, bake, knead, ice and whisk their way through ten weeks of challenges.
At the end of each episode judges Prue and Paul will name who’s leaving the tent and who is the week’s star baker.
Who left The Great British Bake Off this week?
This week it was the halfway point and it was Pastry Week. The remaining bakers had to put their stamp on a classic Cornish pastry in the Signature before making eclairs in a technical challenge set by Prue. Finally, a Showstopper that features a classic tart hidden within a cage made entirely from pastry.
When it came to the results, Laura was crowned star baker while Linda was sent home in this week’s results.
Following Linda’s exit, other bakers still taking part in the show include 30-year-old Dave Friday from Hampshire, 31-year-old Lottie Bedlow from West Sussex, 51-year-old Marc Elliott from Cornwall, 32-year-old Mark Lutton from Liverpool, 31-year-old Laura Adlington from Kent, 39-year-old Hermine from London and 20-year-old Peter Sawkins from Edinburgh.
The Great British Bake Off continues next week on Channel 4 with a Bake Off first – Japanese Week.
Alongside the main show spin-off series The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice airs with Jo Brand, airing on Friday nights on Channel 4.
