Who left Bake Off last night?

Last night, Karen Wright and Terry Hartill became the fourth and fifth bakers to be sent home from The Great British Bake Off 2018.

In last week’s episode, Bake Off host Noel Fielding hinted that two bakers may be going home in Spice Week after the non-elimination in Dessert Week.

After Karen and Terry ended up at the bottom in the Technical Challenge, and then had disasters with their Showstopper biscuit chandeliers, the pair were sent home, leading to tears in the tent of the Channel 4 show.

This came a week after Terry was absent from the tent due to illness.

Also in danger last week was Briony Williams, who has now had a four-week streak at the bottom of the competition, and Jon Jenkins, who found himself at risk for the first time.

At the top of the rankings were Kim-Joy and Rahul Mandal, who remains the one to beat after being named Star Baker twice and landing in the top two for the last two weeks

However, Kim Joy was named Star Baker for the first time after making a stunning winter scene for her biscuit chandelier.


What happened in Spice Week?

Last night’s episode, which you can catch up with on All4, was the first Spice Week in the tent, and saw the nine bakers using cumin, turmeric and ginger in their bakes.

The Signature Challenge saw the bakers create their own spins on the ginger cake.

The standard was high, with Paul giving three ‘Hollywood handshakes’.

One went to Kim-Joy for her ginger cake with poached pears, which was decorated with a gingerbread house, one went to Rahul, whose cake was so good it angered Paul Hollywood and another went to Manon, who admitted she was winging it after a busy week at work.


The bakers who got the worst comments from Paul and Prue Leith were: Briony, whose cake was described as dry and not gingery enough, Karen, whose cake was too hard and boozy, Terry, whose cake looked messy and had the wrong texture, and Dan Beasley-Harling, who was rushed after his first cake mix curdled.

The Technical Challenge was to make a type of Arabian pastry known as a Mamool or Ma’amoul which is filled with walnuts.

Terry had another disaster in this round, as his biscuits melted with just a minute to go.

Top of the rankings was Ruby Bhogal, who made up lost ground after the ginger flavour of her Signature was overpowered by rum.


For the Showstopper, the bakers had to make a biscuit chandelier, which was judged by Paul alone due to Prue being what Noel called, “a bit under the weather.”

Jon baked a celebration chandelier for his daughter’s 21st birthday, Manon was inspired by Art Deco, and Terry went for the 12 days of Christmas theme.

Always ambitious, Rahul baked a whopping 150 biscuits for his mammoth Showstopper.

Terry’s wintery chandelier paled in comparison to Kim-Joy’s similarly snowy centrepiece, and Karen’s biscuits were too thick with not enough flavour, leading to the two being sent home.

The Great British Bake Off continues Tuesday at 8pm on Channel 4
