Bake Off star Hermine thinks she has victory in the bag tonight – but it all goes wrong.
The semi-final theme is Patisserie Week.
And since she is “the queen of patisserie”, she looks a shoo-in for next week’s final.
But her rivals – who include Dave Friday, Peter Sawkins and Laura Adlington – make no bones about the fact she could have an unfair advantage.
Security guard Dave says: “We are all worried about Hermine because she is ‘patisserie’ and she is good at what she does.”
But things go from sweet to sour for the talented accountant and mum as her bakes prove a disaster.
At one point she even says: “I don’t even wanna carry on! It’s a nightmare.”
And her cube cake showstopper proves a major flop.
TV judge Prue Leith even tells her: “I’m really disappointed. This is – by your standards – a failure.”
Paul Hollywood adds after tasting it: “It’s like a rubber ball.”
Only three can make it to next week’s final.
Last week saw the elimination of Marc Elliot, whose chocolate mousse showstopper fell flat with the tough judging panel.
Viewers were stricken to see the Cornish dad leave, as they took to Twitter to praise the mark he had made on the series.
One penned: “I'm heartbroken. Marc was simply amazing," while a second added: "So emotional watching Marc leave – he's too pure for the cruel mistress that is 2020 #GBBO."
After his exit, Marc shared a goodbye message with fans over social media, branding the GBBO experience as “crazy” and “wonderful”.
He said: “Just the most crazy, intense, wonderful, once in a lifetime experience. And I feel honoured to be part of this year's Great British Bake Off.
“The bonds and friendships made this year are extra special as we were living, baking and socialising 24/7.
For me personally being able to share this bonkers experience with my daughters and dog Hamish, just made it one of the most memorable periods of my life.”
The Great British Bake Off airs on Tuesdays at 8pm on Channel 4.
