Great British Bake Off fans ‘devastated’ by Amanda meltdown in biscuit collapse

Fans of The Great British Bake Off were left ‘devastated’ during Tuesday night’s ‘stressful’ showstopper challenge.

Amanda decided to design a sugar biscuit rocking pony, and the bakers were given the task of creating an interactive biscuit.

Others designs included a moving biscuit airplane, a pinball table, and an interactive snooker board.

Amanda had to fight back tears when the rocking horse gave way, sending the episode into chaos.

Prue and Paul complimented her for their delicious horse design.

Turning to Twitter, a horde of upset fans wailed: “This #GBBO episode is devastating!”

Another posted: “This episode is a massive trigger!” as someone else tweeted: “A rocking horse jigsaw!”

“My emotional state is Amanda’s horse,” another quipped.

While a fifth fan echoed: “Amanda’s horse is the saddest horse I have ever seen!”

Poor Amanda, meanwhile, was left fighting back tears as she prepared to hear what the judges had to say about her remaining in the competition for another week.

She said that she had already tried the bake three times and it had never failed before.

Freya, her competitor, also chose a rocking-horse design. Freya’s gingerbread was more traditional and had not collapsed.

“Following up Freya’s incredible rocking horse with Amanda’s pile of horse remains is like following up Red Rum with Donkey from Shrek,” one fan giggled.

“They’re shady for putting the two rocking horses one after the other!” another grumbled, while a third fan joked: “I would’ve told Paul and Prue that it was a build your own horse!”

Amanda avoided elimination from the tent by the skin of her teeth, and Jairzeno was evicted from the Bake Off tent in her place after failing to impress the judges with his half-collapsed toy boat.

Jürgen, meanwhile, was crowned the Star Baker for the second week in a row.

Viewers were left frustrated earlier in the program by technical problems with Channel 4’s system – including audio issues, a lack subtitles and frozen TV screens.

Taking to Twitter to vent their frustrations, one fan wrote: “No subtitles during #GBBO! Thanks @Channel4 now I got to rely on raw talent – the talent that is listening to what other people have to say instead of looking at the words on the bottom of my screen!”

The Great British Bake Off continues next Tuesday at 8pm on Channel 4.
