It was pastry week on the fifth week of The Great British Bake Off and the bakers had a tough time.

The initial 12 bakers were now done to nine, as Amos was the first to go in cake week followed by Keith in the biscuit week and Abbi in bread week.

However, during the chocolate week of Bake Off, no one was eliminated as contestant Tasha was taken ill during filming.

But, as no baker was eliminated from Bake Off it meant that two would be going home during pastry week.

The decision for two eliminations came after judge Paul Hollywood said it "wasn't fair" that a baker would leave after Tasha came close to being a contender for leaving the show.

Now that bakers have had their handful of pastry, find what two bakers were eliminated from The Great British Bake Off.

Who was eliminated from The Great British Bake Off during pastry week?

The two bakers to be eliminated from The Great British Bake Off at Pastry Week were Nicky and Rowan.

Nancy had trouble during the show with her pastry often being too thick and received mixed reviews from judges Paul and Prue.

Whereas Rowan faced difficulty with his flavours despite showing good progress, seeing them become the second Bake Off contestant to leave this week.

On X (formally known as Twitter), the Bake Off account shared: "What an absolutely fabulous time we’ve had with Rowan in the Tent. He’ll be much missed - for the hilarity of his risqué quips as well as his brilliant baking." 

Adding: "It’s a total bag of pants that we have to say goodbye to Nicky - but what a great pleasure it’s been having her in the Tent."
