Marc Elliott was eliminated from Great British Bake Off in a tense quarter-final.
It was dessert week in the Bake Off tent, but Marc had a bittersweet time with the tough challenges.
He struggled the most with the showstopper – with Paul Hollywood comparing the base of his jelly cake to concrete – and was eventually sent home.
Speaking about his exit, just before the semi-final, Marc insisted he was feeling ‘surprisingly okay’ about going home.
‘I am so pleased to have made it to the quarter final,’ he said. ‘I didn’t expect at all to get this far, so I feel it has been a great experience and I am so happy that my two daughters got to share it with me.
’I came to Bake Off to face my anxiety, to face failure, to face all those things that people are quite uncomfortable about dealing with.
‘I’ve definitely learnt a bit more about myself, and, from what people have said, to give myself a bit more credit, which I don’t!’
‘I will be watching with my girls from here on, it’s going to be a bit more of a relaxed viewing now I am not in it,’ he added.
‘It will be great to watch the remaining bakers go through to the semi-final and the final.’
Paul was also adamant that he had been on the biggest ‘journey’ of all the bakers, adding: ‘Each week he has got better and better and better.’
It was a better few days in the tent for Hermine, who was named as star baker – after impressing the judges throughout all three challenges.
‘I can’t believe it,’ she told the camera. ‘I’m still seeing myself in the tent, nervous about whether that jelly will set or not.
‘And I can’t believe they liked that flower!’
Laura also had a great week on the show, despite struggling over the last few weeks – and nearly being booted out in last week’s show.
This means that Laura, Peter, David and Hermine have made it through to next week’s semi-final, and are one step closer to the coveted title.
Great British Bake Off continues on Tuesdays, at 8pm, on Channel 4.
