The Great British Bake Off 2016 kicked off tonight on BBC One but who was the first bake sent home?

Tonight saw Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins return to the Bake Off tent, together with Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood who were ready to cast a critical eye over the creations of this year's contestants.

This evening the twelve new amateur bakers donned their aprons and headed for the iconic tent in the heart of the British countryside.

The competition started with cake week and the group first had to take on a classic: The drizzle cake.

Cue innuendo laden remarks about achieving the ultimate moistness, loving cox and making sure to penetrate one's drizzle deep enough.

After a harsh judging session from Paul, the bakers were then faced with Mary's first technical challenge of the series - a popular little cake with a fatless sponge and tricky chocolate work. The bakers each served up 12 jaffa cakes with some epic failures presented to Paul and Mary.

Ranking last was Andrew and is upside down creation while Selasi's jaffa cakes made it to the top of the pile.

The last of the first week's challenge was the showstopper as Paul and Mary asked the bakers to get innovative with mirror cakes.

Candice's sponge was branded "awful" however Andrew made a comeback after the poor technical round with his beautiful cake winning high praise from Paul.

Selasi once again impressed with a "classy" fruit glaze but it was Jane who won herself the title of baker of the week.

As for who went home, Lee Blanfield was unfortunately the first to depart after the first three rounds.

Great British Bake Off 2016 airs Wednesday nights at 8PM on BBC One.
