Kate Barmby leaves Great British Bake Off

Kate Barmby has been kicked off 'The Great British Bake Off'.

The nurse failed to impress judges Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry throughout the challenges but it was her rabbit-shaped churros, which Paul said looked "flat, like they've been run over", which confirmed her imminent departure.

Speaking after her exit, she said: "I don't think I've completely humiliated myself. There's been some fantastic bakes in amongst some of the shocking ones ... I had a shocking week ...

"I'm not going to cry because it's over because I'm going to get to watch and see who finishes this journey."

And judge Paul Hollywood added: "Is she the worst baker in the group? No she isn't. But this weekend, she was. That's how 'Bake Off' works."

Elsewhere in the show, the Star Baker title was awarded to Benjamina Ebuehi, who wowed with her tropical churros.

She said excitedly: "I've conquered the batter. Star baker. I'm really really happy."

Whilst Mary was particularly impressed with her churros, adding: "Oh, was I thrilled to see Benjamina's churros. Sheer joy! She did brilliantly."

For the technical challenge during this week's show, the contestants were asked to make beautifully intricate heart-shaped pancakes. Whilst for the showstopper round, they were tasked with making 36 churros.

Speaking before the challenge commenced, Mary said: "I want them to think outside of the box and do something quite different."

On next week's show, the contestants will battle it out to produce the most perfect pastries.
