It was the Great British Bake Off's first ever batter week tonight but who got sent home?

It was week four of what we now know to be the FINAL series of The Great British Bake Off on BBC One (*sob*) and Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry served up some of the toughest challenges yet.

And a lot of innuendo about tossing.

In the first of the usual three tasks, the signature bake, the nine remaining contestants had to come up with Yorkshire Pudding creations, baking an identical set with their choice of savoury fillings which ranged from classic roast beef to chilli, tofu and curry.

But it was the Yorkshire puddings that were being judged and last week's star baker Tom Gillford found himself in trouble after his failed to rise to the occasion.

Next, the technical challenge required a steady hand to master as bakers were told to flip the perfect lace pancake.

Rav Bansal ranked bottom while at the top, Benjamina Ebuehi edged out Candice Brown to the win.

Finally there was the show-stopper where ovens were replaced by fryers as Paul and Mary asked the bakers for 36 identical sweet Churros.


At the end of it all Benjamina finished on a high as she won star baker.

But after her churro rabbits were compared to roadkill by Paul, Kate Barmby was sent home.

The Great British Bake off continues Wednesday nights at 8PM on BBC One.
