Great British Bake Off's Latest Axed Baker Penned A Letter After Their Exit, And It's A Real Tear-Jerker

"It was an honour to be a part of a show that was a beacon of light – there is always hope in baking," they wrote.

Warning! This article reveals the result of the latest episode of The Great British Bake Off.

Former Great British Bake Off contestant Mak has penned a tear-jerking letter following his controversial elimination. 

On Tuesday night, the 51-year-old was axed from the competition after his efforts during Biscuit Week failed to impress judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood

While Mak insisted he had expected to leave the tent, there was still some conversation as to whether it was the right result, after Rowan narrowly escaped elimination, despite having served up some incomplete bakes.

Following the result, an emotional open letter from Mak was shared on the official GBBO Twitter account, as he thanked the show for being “a beacon of light” in a year that “the world was in turmoil”. 

He wrote: “There aren’t that many shows on TV that brings a nation together. In recent times only one sticks out and it’s the Bake Off. A show of legendary stature and iconic value.

“The stars aligned for me for series 11 (2020). The world was in turmoil but for me, 2020 was all about the Bake Off.

“The privilege to have been selected and go in front of the nation with my quirky features was unbelievable.

“It was an honour to be a part of a show that was a beacon of light – there is always hope in baking.”

He concluded: “Let’s end oppression and inequality through our kindness and love. Go Bake Off!”

Yep, there’s definitely something in our eye. 


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