As expected, the episode wasn't without drama - as contestant Jamie Finn, 20, forgot to include eggs in one of his bakes.

While working on his dog-themed cake, Jamie said: “Oh my goodness, I’ve forgotten the eggs. I’ll have to start again. No wonder it’s like mixing concrete."

But it was Dan Chambers, 32, who eventually got the chop - despite many viewers insisting it should have been Jamie instead.

Many fans took to Twitter to voice their fury at the result, with one writing: "But! But! Jamie had several nightmares, including his showstopper gets a free pass and yet Hollywood’s slung Dan off because he couldn’t taste one of the flavours in his showstopper!! #GBBO #getinthebin"

After being saved, Jamie walked off camera and said: “Wow, I really messed up. You don’t really know until you’re under pressure what it’s going to be like. I don’t want to get filmed with tears in my eyes. It’s so cringe isn’t it?”
