But who’s left the Bake Off tent so, and who’s won Star Baker the most?

Find out the results of each episode below as judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith whittle down the GBBO contestants and pick their standout stars…

Episode 4 – Dessert Week

Star Baker: Dan was crowned Star Baker in week four as he wowed the judges with his melting chocolate ball dessert against all odds.

Who left in Week 4? Nobody. This was because Terry wasn’t in the tent this week, so the judges thought it wouldn’t be fair to send anybody home. Alas, this does mean that TWO bakers are likely to get the boot next week.

Episode 3 – Bread Week

Star Baker: Rahul got Star Baker for the second week in a row! But he went through a real emotional roller coaster to get there…

Who left in Week 3? Devastatingly, Antony became the third baker to leave the tent after Bread Week served up all sorts of terrors. But through the tears, he kept on smiling…

Episode 2 – Cake Week

Star Baker: Rahul claimed what Paul Hollywood called the first EVER showstopper Hollywood Handshake and took the Star Baker title too. He was clearly overwhelmed by his win and said he hoped he hadn’t peaked too early.

Who left in Week 2? Civil servant and DJ Luke became the second baker to leave the tent following a chocolate showstopper nightmare.

The heat in the tent got the better of his bake and Luke was sent packing by Paul and Prue.


Episode 1 – Biscuit Week

Star Baker: French baker Manon was named the inaugural Star Baker of 2018. She called it a “dream start” at the end of the episode, and she certainly caught Paul’s eye with her “classically French” biscuits and baking precision.

Who left in Week 1? Northern Ireland’s Imelda sadly became the first baker to leave the competition, following a “terrible” Wagon Wheel technical challenge and an uninspiring biscuit selfie.

Prue complained that her seaside selfie biscuits were “bland”, “thick” and “dry”, and in the end Sandi Toksvig announced that she would be heading home. Fellow bakers in the mix to leave including Terry and Ruby just managed to do enough to survive – but for Imelda, the journey is over after just three challenges.
