Someone Has Left "Bake Off" And The British Are Exceptionally Angry

If you haven't watched the latest Bake Off yet, then please be aware of spoilers.

I don't know about you – in fact, I don't even need to spend the time here to point it out – but Liam is the best contestant on The Great British Bake Off this year. He is.

He has been through a proper Bake Off journey: upping his game and listening to feedback from Paul and Prue. He got Star Baker as a result (and should have won another week too, but let's not go there). And he's funny, articulate, engaging, and endearing.

The problem was that during this week he came last in the Technical Challenge (a Cumberland Rum Nicky).

It was Forgotten Week, in case you forgot what bake that was.

And everyone in Britain was a little bit like this.

Liam. Please smash this showstopper 🙏🏼 #GBBO

And after he finished his Victorian Savoy Showstopper rather prematurely, his bake became rather saggy and was criticised for how it looked as well as how it tasted.

And then it got to the crucial bit of the show where we find out who leaves the competition.

#GBBO IF LIAM GOES WE RIOT IF LIAM GOES WE RIOT IF LIAM GOES WE RIOT IF LIAM GOES WE RIOT IF LIAM GOES WE RIOT IF LIAM GOES WE RIOT IF LIAM

But with Kate not having done so well either this week, quite a lot of us were comforted in the knowledge that it might not be Liam leaving the competition. Then Sandi said:

And Noel and Liam immediately hugged each other.

And Liam shared this heartfelt message on Twitter.

THAT’S A WRAP! Just like to give say a massive thank you to everyone who supported me. remember, it’s just the beg… https://t.co/P5Wab5opBK

It went down well with Bake Off viewers.

Really well.

This is obviously what the orange skies foretold 😠 #GBBO

Really, really, really well.

Even previous bakers who competed in The Great British Bake Off are ABSOLUTELY TITTING THRILLED AT WHAT JUST HAPPENED.

So that's that then. What are you doing next Tuesday night? #GBBO

That's Richard Burr, from Season 5.

It has also been ONLY A WEEK since the other best person on Bake Off this year, Yan, was asked to leave the goddamn competition.

NOT LONG AFTER JULIA LEFT AS WELL.

In conclusion: Britain is well and truly broken.

i knew i shouldn't have trusted bake off on channel 4 #GBBO

We are screwed.

“How do you feel about Liam leaving bake off?” #GBBO

Nothing will save us.

Taught my 7 year old not to use the word “literally” wrong. She went to bed crying after #GBBO saying “Liam broke my heart; figuratively"

  1. Final thought: as it was Forgotten Bakes Week, can we forget everything that just happened?
