Who left The Great British Bake Off this week and when can I catch up on All 4 are the questions on every fan’s mind since Biscuit Week unfolded on the hit show. 

From the moment The Great British Bake Off started (opens in new tab) on 21st September, fans have been delighted to have the popular competition show back on our screens. As they waited for its return, many might have reflected on where past Great British Bake Off contestants are now (opens in new tab) or checked out some Great British Bake Off recipes (opens in new tab). But there’s nothing quite like the comforting baking show itself and we can now enjoy seeing Paul Hollywood, Prue Leith, Noel Fielding, Matt Lucas and this year's bakers every week. For those still wondering where Bake Off is filmed (opens in new tab), the show has once again set up the tent in the grounds of the Down Hall Hotel. 

And it was here that the 2021 line-up took on Paul and Prue’s latest delicious challenges. But who left The Great British Bake Off last night, who became star baker and when will Bake Off be on All 4? 

We reveal all you need to know if you missed this week’s ultimate baking showdown...

Who left The Great British Bake Off this week?

Sadly for fans, it was Amanda who left The Great British Bake Off this week, becoming the sixth unlucky baker to leave the iconic Bake Off tent.

Greek baker Amanda Georgiou failed to impress Paul and Prue enough to retain her place in the competition in pastry week. 

The signature challenge saw bakers make cream-filled donuts, but the Metropolitan Police officer got her marching orders after the judges didn’t like her rose flavour filling.

And then her showstopper terrine pie disintegrated as she tried to take it out of the tin.

She said, 'Chigs came to help me but even he couldn’t rescue the disaster.”

Speaking of her time on the show, Amanda added, "It is an emotional rollercoaster but certainly one that I would recommend to any keen baker."

Bake Off tweeted, '"I do love to make my food with love” Here are Amanda’s best bites from her time on Bake Off. #GBBO'

The publication reports that episodes will continue to land on Netflix for US viewers on a weekly basis. This means they will also get to cheer their favourites and bid a fond farewell to the person who left The Great British Bake Off this week.

Though this current series is the twelfth overall, it is called Series 5 on All 4 because this year’s series is the fifth since the show moved from the BBC to Channel 4. 

More exciting shows are coming to All4 before the end of the year, too. Complaints Welcome on Channel 4 (opens in new tab) starts in early October and will soon be available to watch on the streaming service, while controversial new show Murder Island (opens in new tab) is available to watch now.

How long is The Great British Bake Off on for?

Those who can’t help feeling for the baker who left The Great British Bake Off this week will no doubt also be sad to see many others leaving the tent over the next ten weeks. Saying goodbye to so many wonderful contestants might not be easy, but the range of skills shown and mouth-watering bakes presented to Paul and Prue makes it worth it.

It’s understood that the series has been filmed in “bubbles” this year due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. However, it’s thought that the hit show will still consist of the usual ten episodes shown on a weekly basis, meaning that the final episode could potentially air on 23rd November 2021.

These build to the grand finale where one of this year’s contestants will earn a place in the Bake Off hall of fame - and a coveted trophy. Each episode of The Great British Bake off consists of three challenges: a signature bake, a technical challenge, and a showstopper.

From collapsing cakes to stunning pastry, if past years are anything to go on then the next several weeks will be full of plenty of dramatic and joyful moments.
