THE Great British Bake Off is well over halfway through now – and week eight saw another baker's journey came to an end.
Week Eight was desert week – but for one baker it was their last time in the famous tent.
Who left Bake Off 2020 tonight?
Marc became the eighth baker to leave the The Great British Bake Off tent.
Dessert week required all the bakers to raise their game but unfortunately Marc didn’t make it through to the semi-finals.
Hermine was yet again named Star Baker after impressing the judges.
Marc Elliott said: "I am feeling surprisingly ok actually.
"I came to the Bake Off to kind of face my anxieties, to face failure and to face all those things that people can be quite uncomfortable about dealing with.
"I have definitely learned a lot more about myself, and maybe from what people have said, to give myself a bit more credit, which I don’t."
He added: "Unfortunately this was the week that deserted me, but I am
so pleased to have made it to the quarter finals.
"I didn’t expect at all to get this far, so I feel it has been a great experience and I am so happy that my two daughters got to share it with me.
"Paul felt there wasn’t enough flavours in my signature of a vanilla and mascarpone cheesecake.
"And for my Sussex Pond puddings in the technical they didn’t do so well in the judging either, I really don’t think I will ever make one of those again.
"Even my knowledge of tying knots because of my climbing didn’t help me.
"My Showstopper was an apple jelly with chocolate and strawberry mousse – flavoured with jasmine and rose – my jelly had a wobble but the judges just felt it wasn’t good enough.
"My best moment was getting Star Baker on bread week, I really wasn’t expecting that, and by far the worst moment was seeing David Bowie’s head collapse in my hands, that was a pretty horrible moment and I still have nightmares about it.
"Living in the bubble with my two daughters was quite surreal, but then quickly it became the new normal.
"In the first few days you are walking around with a big huge smile on your face.
"The girls loved being there and really enjoyed walking Prue’s two dogs, they felt like it was being in a holiday camp with a few celebrities thrown in.
"They had the time of their life, and it’s something we all shared together and can talk about in the future.
"Sculpting for me is more of a hobby now, as I am a support worker, and of course being a single parent is a full time job.
"When I do get spare time I love Photography and rock climbing when I
can. I live in a little village in Cornwall, it is a small friendly community. I do a lot of walking on the coast path with my dog Hamish.
"I am originally from Leicester and have had an incredible amount of support from there, that together with the support from my village and Cornwall has been overwhelming.
"Paul has this stern image so you really want positive feedback from him, but at the same time Prue was the most encouraging , so I always wanted to impress her too.
"Matt and Noel work so fantastically together, and they do soften the blow when it goes wrong. They cut through the tension especially as you go further through the competition.
"I would say being greeted by my two daughters at the end of the episode wins the best experience overall throughout the series.
"They were a huge support also when I felt a bit low, they are amazing girls.
"I would definitely encourage people to apply, I had no vision of getting on the show.
"I felt that I wasn’t really an all round baker, I only applied to keep my daughters happy.
"I would say you must give yourself the chance to have that opportunity and apply.
"I will be watching with my girls from here on, it’s going to be a bit more of a relaxed viewing now I am not in it.
"It will be great to watch the remaining bakers go through to the semi final and the final.
"I am wishing them all the best, they are a great bunch of people, and although I am based in Cornwall we are hoping to meet up when we can, but in the meantime we are all in daily contact.
"I don’t know if GBBO has changed my life, but it’s made me a better baker.
"I am not sure what is next for me, but it would be lovely if due to the bake off experience I could find a career in baking.
"I know that is the direction I would like to go now."
What was this week's Bake Off theme?
The theme was desert week.
The signature round featured a miniature cheesecake, while the technical challenge asked bakers to rustle up a dish dating back to the 17th century.
For their showstoppers, the bakers had to concoct a jelly art dessert cake constructed of delicate sponge.
