'The Great British Bake Off' Review - Iain Comes Unstuck Over A Baked Alaska In Episode 4

Posted: Updated:

Week 4 brought a surprise in the bakers' tent, with one of the contestants having a right royal flounce when his ice-cream was perfectly whipped… out of the freezer by another contestant.

It all started so normally, as the nine remaining contestants got to grips with a self-saucing pudding, whatever that is. Nancy used her gadgetry, Kate pretended she was rubbish, Norman answered back, and Mary Berry's pink lipstick stayed intact, even while chomping on a scarily perfect tiramisu. So far, so Bake Off.

Iain! Oh, what have you done?

But then… disaster. Everyone was struggling equally with the show stopper - trying to cool down a Baked Alaska on what the judges admitted was the hottest day of the year.

Iain had put his ice-cream into a freezer to set, but it wasn't his freezer, so it was removed by a rival we shouldn't name (Diana). When he saw his Alaska become the Amazon, flowing straight onto the table, he presented it… straight into the bin!

Despite the judges' kind faces, the proof of the pudding was in the exit of Iain. It was a lesson in containing their kitchen frustrations for the other contestants, oh, and for the rest of us, naturally. In never trusting a woman called Diana despite her kindly face and her mugs to camera. She's in it to win it.

Do you think Iain should have been allowed to stay? Or do you think Diana should have owned up? Share your thoughts below...
