Great British Bake Off thrown into chaos as contestant suffers dramatic accident in the tent | The Sun

THE Great British Bake Off is thrown into chaos next week after a contestant suffers an unfortunate accident in the tent.

Bread Week looks like it will be a tense affair as the contestants set out for a fabled Hollywood handshake for their cottage loaf signatures.

Show presenter Noel Fielding calls it "a traditional technical that leaves some hot under the collar".

The Essex girl is left with broken glass strewn across her work station after a electric whisk smashes her mixing bowl.

Her co-stars are left open-mouthed by the incident which threatens to derail Dana's Bake Off journey.

The contestants had been asked to whip up marshmallow biscuits in the Signature challenge, custard creams in the Technical and then their 'favourite meal' out of biccies for a Showstopper.

Speaking after his GBBO exit, Keith said: "I was very comfortable at leaving, as I think it was arguably one of the easiest decisions in GBBO history, so it didn’t come as a surprise to me.

"I think I had to cheer up some of the other bakers rather than the other way round."

He added: "I want to do more and more baking – I am determined never to under-bake a biscuit again.

"And I want to tackle challenging bakes now that I have more confidence.

"My worst challenge was the Biscuit Technical – none of my biscuit challenges were great but there were some redeeming features in both the signature and showstopper that brought me a small degree of comfort.

"The custard creams were just embarrassingly awful…"
