Great British Bake Off’s George bids emotional farewell as he becomes latest contestant to leave

The Great British Bake Off aired another emotional exit on Tuesday as George became the latest contestant to leave the tent.

For the latest instalment, the bakers were challenged during caramel week where they had to produce several tricky creations, which included caramel tarts, caramel biscuit bars and a showstopper masterpiece.

After failing to impress Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood, George became the latest contestant to leave the tent.

Speaking after his fate was revealed, he said: "There is bittersweet to it. Speaking to my family, they're just so proud that I've managed to even get in the tent."

While he sweetly added in an open letter, which was shared to the official GBBO Twitter, that he was "so grateful" to have been part of the show.

He penned: "As sad as I am to be leaving the tent of dreams, I have made some memories that will be in my heart forever.

"I'm so grateful to have been part of something so special and also be lucky enough to leave this experience with life long friends.

"Thank you to everyone who has supported me on my journey and a special thanks to my wife and kids who had to cope with weeks of frantic baking, meltdowns and a very messy kitchen!

"Thanks again everyone… lots of love, George x."

Great British Bake Off fans were left devastated over the news as they took to Twitter to reveal how much they will miss George in the tent.

One person said: "So sad to see George go tonight! Brilliant baker. Well done you will be missed @BritishBakeOff."

A different account put: "What a sweetheart! So many great moments in the tent! Thanks George."
