Warning! This article contains spoilers about the latest episode of The Great British Bake Off.

Great British Bake Off viewers have been left devastated after a fan favourite was axed from the tent on Tuesday night.

Chocolate Week saw Sura sent home after serving up a raw cake to judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith.

The 31-year-old pharmacy dispenser from London failed to impress over the three challenges, producing some less-than-perfect chocolate brownies in the Signature, struggling with her babka in the Technical, and underbaking her white chocolate cake in the Showstopper.

After exiting the competition, Sura said: “I’m gutted but what’s done is done.

“I’m not going to be bitter about it, I have had a great time.”

She added: “I hate white chocolate, I hate chocolate end of. I don’t think I will ever eat chocolate again.”

There was an outpouring of support for Sura on social media after her exit, having won the hearts of fans with her comic timing and facial expressions, as well as her previous bakes, which had marked her out as an early favourite.

Lottie, 31, a pantomime producer from West Sussex, narrowly avoided being axed from the competition, while project manager Mark, 32, was named star baker.

Next week will see the eight remaining bakers tackle Pastry Week, and from the look of the trailer at the end of Tuesday night’s episode, there looks set to be a number of disasters.

In the meantime, you can relive all of Sura’s best bits in a video the official Bake Off Twitter account tweeted below...

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