Bake Off Crème de la Crème returned to our screens tonight (April 4), and as usual, it made us all equal parts hungry and stressed. Just like when you bake at home, really.

Returning with the show for its second series were the formidable judges Benoit Blit and Cherish Finden, along with new host Angus Deayton, who took over the reins from chef Tom Kerridge.

In tonight's episode, the five teams of professional pastry chefs were called upon to make 36 identical moka au cafe slices and 36 identical napoleons, as well as their take on a peach melba. Casual.

It was Paula's team who came out on top this week, earning themselves a seriously impressive 57 points out of 60, while it was Jack's team who had to say goodbye to the competition, after they failed to meet Benoit and Cherish's stringent standards.

Needless to say, the professionals' amazing creations had viewers at home feeling very tense. There are none of Mary Berry's soothing tones here.

Despite contributing significantly to the level of tension, viewers at home couldn't help but love judge Cherish and her exacting standards – and when we say 'exacting', we're not joking.

Because making a triumphant return once again was Cherish's trusty ruler, and even former Great British Bake Off finalist Andrew Smyth couldn't cope with it.
