Who left Bake Off: The Professionals this week? All the answers are here if you didn't get a chance to tune in on Tuesday night.
Bake Off: The Professionals is back for 2021 and fans can see how teams of professional pastry chefs get on when they compete in a baking competition where they are expected to turn ordinary patisserie and the most delicious desserts into masterpieces.
If you’re a fan of the amateur Great British Bake Off and the Celebrity Great British Bake Off, you won’t be able to resist the quality of the Professionals Bake Off – where even the experienced pastry chefs find avoiding a ‘soggy bottom’ a bit of a challenge.
And if you missed last night’s show aired on Channel 4, here’s who left Bake Off: The Professionals this week…
Who left Bake Off: The Professionals this week?
Jamie and Andréa left Bake Off: The Professionals this week. They failed to impress the celebrated pastry chefs Cherish Finden and Benoit Blin and were ultimately eliminated ahead of the next round.
But the duo took leaving the contest completely in their stride as they reflected, “We did what we can. Some things don’t go as well as we’d wanted it to.”
The GBBO tweeted, ‘After a close decision for the judges, we’re sad to say goodbye to Jamie and Andréa. They can be very proud of what they achieved on the show – and we wish them the best for the future! #GBBO‘
The professionals are made up of talented people from across the country who work in top hotels, restaurants and small businesses and all have to battle it out in a series of competitive heats.
Twelve pairs of professionals started the competition split into two heats. The top three from each heat go forward to the next stage where three more teams will face elimination weekly before the final.
The following couples have made it through to the later stages of Bake Off: The Professionals; Julien and Elise, Kevin and Maria Vittoria and Michael and Andrew.
Meanwhile, next week there is a new batch of professional pastry chefs to meet as it’s Heat Two of the contest.
