It was one of the most formidable weeks of all on today's (September 12) Great British Bake Off – yes, we're talking about Paul Hollywood's alternate Christmas: Bread Week.

So, who rose to this week's challenge, and whose creations were staler than the ageing loaf in the back of our cupboard?

(We'll stop now, sorry.)

After being set an unusual tea cake signature challenge, the downright obscure technical challenge of making a "cottage loaf" and an overwhelming coloured bread showstopper, 10 bakers became nine.

And there was a new star baker to crown, too, of course.

So, to take on the role of Sandi for a moment, it's with pleasure that we announce that Julia is this week's Star Baker. No thanks to her incredibly phallic snail bread, of course.

(Yes, you read that correctly.)

Julia managed to de-throne Steven from his two-time winning Star Baker-streak, so while it was great to see another baker named the Star, it was also, sadly, time to bid farewell to one more contestant – and this week, it was Flo.

Bread Week might not have been Flo's bag, but she did give us one of the best slip of the tongues, as she introduced her "Davey Jones' locker" bread sculpture as "Tom Jones' locker" instead.

We miss you already, Flo ]]>😥
