It is Pastry Week on the Great British Bake Off 2016 tonight and here's s spoiler-filled preview about what to expect.

After last Wednesday's first ever batter week, Bake Off it's back to its roots with pastries this evening.

For the first of the usual three tasks, the signature challenge, it is breakfast time, Danish style.

In the technical challenge, Mary asks the bakers to keep their cool, giving them limited time and instructions to bake a classic British Bakewell tart.

The difficult bake sees one of the contestants - Andrew Smyth - forget to actually turn his oven on, causing last minute panic in the tent.

He reacts: "It's not cooking! Oh my word, the oven wasn't on! That's unfortunate. It means it's been in there for 15 minutes doing nothing."

The third and final challenge is a bite-size showstopper as the remaining bakers are asked to cope with a fine filo pastry which is notoriously difficult to make and even trickier to bake.

Candice Brown opts for a black pudding and apple filling, prompting innuendo galore

"It's good to get your hands in and give your sausages a good squeeze," she remarks.

Which bakers will impress Mary and Paul to get the title of star baker and who will be the fifth to head home?
