Freya has become the latest baker to be kicked out of the Great British Bake Off.

Vegan baker Freya was sent home after the show's first ever German themed week.

The bakers had to make their choice of German biscuits, followed by a challenging technical.

At just 19-years-old, Freya was this year's youngest contestant.

She impressed the judges and viewers each week with her created plant-based bakes.

Sadly creative Freya struggled in the show's first-ever German themed week.

Her showstopper yeasted cake included a lot of red wine, and Paul Hollywood felt it was too overpowering and also on the messy side.

Earlier in the show her 24 German biscuits topped with vegan meringue were deemed to be overbaked.

Fans were sad for the youngster.

One tweeted: "Hold your head high Freya, you did yourself and North Yorkshire proud"

"Can't believe she went home when George had raw cake!" fumed another.

"Freya you were my daughters favourite, she cried when she saw you crying you did amazing. Be proud of yourself!!" praised one fan.

"Her meringue was gorgeous, can't believe they were egg free!" raved another.

Many fans the theme of German week gave popular baker Jürgen an unfair advantage.

"Well, if Jürgen doesn't win German week… It's a fix," said one.

"Jürgen has a massive home team advantage on this one if it's German week," fumed another.

"We've never had a German week before, have we? Feels like an unfair advantage to Jürgen" ranted one fan.

Jürgen ended up coming fourth in the tricky royal cake technical.

Italian Giuseppe won star baker this week, when many thought it would be Jürgen.

He received criticism about his bake saying it was on the dry side.

Jürgen told off Paul Hollywood for saying the show stopper bake wasn't traditional.

The German baker pointed out it was like asking for "a tiered apple crumble or trifle" as the yeasted cakes don't usually come in layers.
