Emotions were very much running high in 'The Great British Bake Off' tent last night for what was the show's first-ever Dairy Week. Big gambles were made, plates were broken and tears were shed, however, none of this was done by Phil, the contestant who unexpectedly went home last night.
It was a bad week for Michael and Priya, with Michael's risk on his signature challenge not paying off while Priya's technical challenge was a disaster. Phil, in fairness, didn't overly impress with his offerings but still, both contestants and viewers alike weren't expecting it to be his week to go.
Oh right lets send the oldest contestant home, Phil was robbed. Can someone explain how Priya stayed after her disastrous technical? #GBBO

#gbbo 1/2 am actually disgusted by the result tonight, Priya who came last in technical and didn't do that well in other two challenges goes through and Phil who has one slightly disappointing showstopper (but did well in other bakes) goes out. Gasps of disbelief from all the ...

Here's a lovely letter from Phil if you're missing him.

'The Great British Bake Off' continues at 8pm on Channel 4 next Tuesday. Contestants will be tasked with creating confectionery inspired by the Roaring Twenties. The signature challenge involves a decorative twist on custard pies, while the technical round will be a test of the bakers' timing and consistency. Finally, for the Showstopper, they must create a three-tiered masterpiece inspired by their tipple of choice.
