Great British Bake Off (GBBO) returned for the seventh episode of the 2021 series last week with one baker winning the star baker accolade and another leaving the show.

Each week amateur bakers take part in cake challenges where they attempt to pull off signature, technical and showstopper bakes.

Every episode is a combination of a baking week and last week’s episode showed the bakers taking on caramel week.

Who left Great British Bake Off last week?

Unfortunately, another episode of GBBO meant another contestant had to leave.

This time it was George’s turn to say goodbye to the Bake Off tent.

The 34-year-old Shared Lives co-ordinator from London will not take part in any further challenges.

The programme’s Twitter account tweeted a letter from George, writing: ““I’m so grateful to have been part of something so special” Here’s George’s touching letter to all you fans of Bake Off. #GBBO”
