Unfortunately, it was the end of the road for Amos, as he became the first contestant to leave the Bake Off tent.
At the end of this week's baking challenges, Alison announced that Dan was the Star Baker, while Noel had the difficult job that no one wants of telling Amos, 43, that he would be the first baker to go home.
"It was obviously the Showstopper that stopped my show. As soon as I heard my name, I came out of my body. It has been amazing being in that group of people walking into the tent on the first day, and that is softening the blow a little bit," Amos said.
"Tomorrow, you will remember that you got into Bake Off," Prue said.
Following his Bake Off stint, Amos revealed what he gained from the show, saying: "What I have learned from my experience on Bake Off is that I can always bring anything together under pressure and that I’m now a part of an exclusive club.
"I will definitely keep on baking, and hope to maybe open up my own bakery and feed the world with love and cake - and who knows where it will take me."
