The Great British Bake Off spoilers follow.

The Great British Bake Off had to say goodbye to another baker after this season’s dreaded Bread Week.

Following tonight’s (October 5) three bread-focused challenges, Rochica had to leave her apron behind.

“I have really, really enjoyed it,” she said.

“I’m just gonna keep baking,” she added, before leaving the tent.

For Bread Week, the bakers had to measure themselves with three carb-filled recipes. First, a focaccia of their choice. Second, ciabatta sticks with tzatziki dip and, finally, a showstopper challenge featuring milk bread and spectacular designs. Well, sort of.

To the surprise of absolutely no one, Giuseppe was on a roll, earning the title of Star Baker this week.

The Italian baker took the biscuit thanks to his tomatoes and olives focaccia. A tribute to his roots and family, the dough was so exquisite that Paul asked him for the recipe and shook his hand.

The contestant’s ciabatta sticks also ranked first, leaving him “a little emotional”. For the showstopper challenge, the baker recreated a basket of fruits and vegetables that won the hearts and taste buds of Paul and Prue.

But after failing the milk bread showstopper challenge – “the texture is not right,” Prue declared – Rochica knew she was on borrowed time.

“It’s definitely been my worst week,” she said.

“I don’t know if I’m gonna get [another chance].”

Maggie, who also feared being eliminated tonight, will have another shot at proving her skills, but will have to up her game for Dessert Week.

The Great British Bake Off airs on Channel 4 in the UK. In the US, it’s known as The Great British Baking Show, and streams on Netflix.
