Indian-born Antony, 29, struggled with all the challenges in bread week – as Rahul Mandal was again named Star Baker.

“Bread has never been my strongest baking strength,” Antony said.

“The first bread that I baked was only this January, so I am a relative newcomer.

“The region I am from in India we make rotis, which are simple flat breads, and not naan breads. So where I am from nobody would make naan bread, so it was all new to me.”

Antony got his calculations wrong while making signature Chelsea Buns, struggled to rise to the technical of Garlic Naan, and was finished off by the showstopper Tiered Korovai.

“Paul prowling around the tent made me stupidly nervous as he is the Bread King, so that wrecked my nerves as I wanted to try my best.”

Despite this, he has no regrets and vowed to keep baking.

“To have met the most amazing bakers and made new best friends has been incredible for me.”

Imelda sadly did not impress with her selfie-biscuit, showing a scene where she relaxed by the seaside.

Meanwhile Manon Lagreve was made the star baker for her gorgeous hazelnut Cornish shortbread and Japan-inspired selfie.

The judges blamed his creamy mixture as being to slippery in the heat, but it sadly meant he was sent home.

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