Following the most controversial moment of the series so far, Great British Bake Off fans have shared their outrage at the judges’ decision to send home Manon instead of Rahul – with many also criticising their choice of Star Baker.
A less-than-perfect smørrebrød (open sandwich), a technical bake of aebleskiver (spherical apple pancakes) and a showstopper of kagekone (a celebration ‘cake’ made from decorated Danish pastries) saw French baker Manon exit the tent on Danish Week.
But comparing her offerings – and the comments of judges Paul Hollywood and Pure Leith – with Rahul’s, which included raw bread and burnt pancakes, viewers were at a loss to understand the decision.
Meanwhile, there was also puzzlement from some quarters at the choice of Ruby rather than Briony as Star Baker.
Au revoir Manon…
