It's the Great British Bake Off 2016 Quarter Finals tonight and just five bakers remain.

Last week saw a shock exit for two-time star baker Tom Gillford in the classic desserts week.

And while we're sure he's gutted to have left the tent, he may have got out at just the right time.

Tonight on the Great British Bake Off is a first for the show: Tudor week.

The BBC One series is stepping back in time with three brand new challenges set from the time when Henry VIII ruled over the country.

First up is a classic Tudor pie in the signature challenge as the five remaining bakers aim to impress Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry with savoury-stuffed pies.

In the technical challenge, the bakers are faced with some unusual cooking tools as they're tasked with recreating an old time knotted Tudor biscuit.

Finally it's the showstopper and the last chance the bakers have to win a spot in the semi-final.

This week they have to construct a masterpiece that is a spectacle of marzipan, good enough to grace the tables of any royal Tudor banquet.

Those left in the running are Andrew Smyth, Jane Beedle, Selasi Gbormittah, Candice Brown and Benjamina Ebuehi.

But which four will stay for another week and who will be the unlucky one leaving the tent?

Elsewhere in the show this evening, Mel Giedroyc takes a visit to London's Hampton Court as she uncovers how one sweet delicacy nearly enticed Queen Elizabeth I to marry.

The Great British Bake Off airs this evening from 8PM on BBC One.
