Great British Bake Off eliminates sixth baker of 2021 series

Who didn't make it through Pastry Week?

The Great British Bake Off spoilers follow.

Tension was at an all-time high as The Great British Bake Off bakers tackled a hectic, weirdly innuendo-packed Pastry Week.

For tonight's (October 26) three challenges, the contestants had to make a perfect batch of filled and glazed chouxnuts, a laminated baklava and a beautifully designed terrine pie.

Unfortunately, Amanda and her fancy terrine pie couldn't handle the pressure and she had to leave the tent.

After baking a batch of excessively sweet chouxnuts, Amanda fell on the showstopper challenge. The baker's attempts to keep her pie in place were vain, as it fell apart once it was presented to the judges, Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood.

"I mean, you've got to go at some time," Amanda said after her elimination.

"I came here to have a good time," she continued.

"It's a little bit stressful here, but it's good stress."

Similarly dealing with an undercooked, not-properly-cooled-down pie, George was sure his time to leave the show had come.

He said he "couldn't believe it" when Noel Fielding called Amanda's name instead of his.

"This has given me a big push to fight for my place," he declared.

Crystelle earned the star baker title for this episode with a terrine pie in the shape of a cottage dedicated to her late great-grandmother.

She said her curry-filled Lily Nana's pickle cottage was her "most sentimental" bake so far. And one of her most difficult, as the risk of ending up with a runny pie was real.

"It's witty, it's charming," Prue said after tasting the layered pie.

"It's brave to make curry pie," Paul told Crystelle, before giving her an unexpected yet well-deserved handshake.

The Great British Bake Off airs on Tuesdays at 8pm Channel 4 in the UK. In the US, it's known as The Great British Baking Show, and streams on Netflix.
