It was week six of The Great British Bake Off 2016 tonight but who left in the results?

Well it was the end of the road for another baker and Sue Perkins had the job of saying goodbye to Rav Bansal.

Following last week's all traditional pastries, this evening the remaining bakers took on the Bake Off's first ever Botanical Week with challenges inspired by nature.

First up the bakers started with the signature challenge as Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry asked the contestants to come up with a citrus meringue pie.

However there were fractions in the tent when Benjamina Ebuehi and Selasi Gbormittah ended up baking the same grapefruit based dessert.

Benjamina joked: "It was my idea to do grapefruit. I think maybe he hacked into my laptop."

Meanwhile, Jane Beedle remarked as Candice Brown and her both create a coconut and lime pie: "I know where my rival is – she is right behind me."

When it came to the judging, Benjamina's pie was praised for her "beautiful" bake but Selasi's filling was described as "too fry".

Andrew Smyth's dodgy pastry saved but a lovely curd while Candice's bake "tasted great but looked awful".

Next up was the technical challenge and hidden under the gingham cloth was a French herby bread fougasse recipe set by Paul.

Finally, the first ever Bake Off botanical showstopper turned out to be the biggest challenge of the series so far as Paul and Mary asked for not one, not two, but three tiers of elaborately decorated cake.

The judges were looking for beautifully flavoured sponges and wanted to be wowed by stunning floral designs.

When it came to the results, Paul admitted it was the "hardest judging" yet, as Andrew and Rav came under particularly scrutiny for their underwhelming showstopper bakes.

At the reveal, Tom won star baker while it was Rav who said goodbye.

The Great British Bake Off 2016 airs tonight at 8PM on BBC One.
