Great British Bake Off - as it happened: Dessert week is here, but was there an editing error?

Britain’s most beloved and pastel-hued baking show is back once more, with a batch of new Great British Bake Off contestants taking a break from skipping merrily in a park to try and get Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith’s taste buds tingling.

Last episode was bread week, as contestants tried to impress with Chelsea buns, while the technical challenge – non-yeast naan bread – proved a difficult bake to master. The gang then grappled with the devilishly difficult showstopper (korovai, a traditional bread in Eastern Europe that’s mainly associated with weddings).

Rahul was named Star Baker for the second week in a row, with Antony was sadly sent packing.
