She was far from being named Star Baker this week, but Val Stones’s gingerbread disaster certainly won Bake Off viewers’ sympathy, with the phrases “poor Val” and “worried” among the top expressions related to her on Twitter on Wednesday night, as she become the most tweeted about contestant, mentioned 6,981 times during the show.

In second place in the Twitter chart was Selasi, name-checked 4,907 times, according to social media analysts Visibrain, as his laid-back attitude to baking continued to impress fans, who used the words “chill” and “calming” most often in their tweets about him.

And Star Baker Candice had people talking again, with the third-highest number of mentions as her winning “gingerbread pub” garnered plenty of praise, as did her “pug” love – and, of course, her new shade of “lipstick”.
