So, pastry week. We saw flaky tasty Danish pastries, numerous questionable Bakewell tarts and some very impressive filo showstoppers. But while Candice took the star baker award for the second time, all eyes were on 66-year-old Val Stones, the fifth baker to leave the tent.
In fact, throughout the episode Val won over everyone on twitter.
And her final departure from the tent brought a tear to the nation’s eye, especially when she said “whenever I make anything, I stir love into it, I knead love into it. So when I present it, it’s special”.
I cried when Val said she puts love into her bakes. Let's all put love into things we do.
