Who left The Great British Bake Off last night?

After last week's bread-based challenges ended with nobody leaving the tent, episode four of Bake Off 2022 ended in a rare double elimination. 

With Rebs and Adbul absent due to illness in the previous episode, Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith decided against sending anyone home, meaning two bakers were sent packing after Mexican Week on Tuesday. 

It was Rebs and James who failed to impress the judges enough to stay for another week in the iconic tent, with both of the bakers having to bid the contest goodbye.

Having been reduced to tears by the news, 23-year-old Rebs admitted that she had wanted her time on Bake Off to last longer. 

"Being on Bake Off is like taking a ride on a magic carpet... I'd do it all again if I could," Rebs wrote in her sweet leaving letter.

Meanwhile James penned, "I've never had such an amazing bunch of people around me; both the bakers and the Bake Off team."

Plenty of Bake Off fans were gutted to see the pair go, with so many praising them for their special presence in the tent.

 "I’m going to miss James. He was so lovely," one wrote on Twitter. 

"Noooo!!! Not James and Rebs. Poor decisions here," another added, insisting that Prue and Paul had made the wrong choice.
