The Great British Bake Off was one man down for Dessert Week on Tuesday night, with Terry and his wonderful moustache absent from the show due to illness.


Given Terry’s non-appearance, the judges decided it wouldn’t be fair to send anybody home, so no bakers left the tent in Week Four.

However, this means that TWO contestants are likely to get the boot next week.

The Great British Bake Off continues on Tuesdays at 8pm on Channel 4
