THE Great British Bake Off’s third episode saw the contestants tasked with Bread Week.
Impressing judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith is never an easy task, but which contestant was sent home in episode three and who still remains in the competition? Here’s everything you need to know…
Who has left The Great British Bake Off tent?
- Week One, Cakes – Dan Chambers got the elbow after making changing his recipe in the signature bake which left it under-baked. He fared a little better in the technical challenge with his attempt at baking six identical angel cake slices. Despite being credited for an original design with his Pirate Island cake, alongside its dry ice waterfall, it still wasn’t enough to keep him in the competition.
- Week Two, Biscuits – After having already left a not-so-great impression with Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith in week one, Jamie Finn was the next baker to receive the boot after failing to show any growth from his previous attempts. And it’s fair to say that week two proved to be just as challenging for the waiter from Surrey.
- Week Three, Bread – Following a good run during Biscuit Week, Amelia had a considerably harder time with the Bread difficulties.The fashion designer, who was named the worst baker in the technical test, failed to impress with her ‘chaotic’ Chorizo lunch tear and was told her baking was ‘terrible’ for her Caterpillar transformation showstopper.
