Bake Off fans fuming as George is sent home despite wowing with showstopper as Jurgen gets Star Baker AGAIN

THE GREAT British Bake Off fans were left fuming this week after George was sent home – despite wowing with his showstopper.

Meanwhile, German baking extraordinaire Jurgen was awarded Star Baker for the third time, redeeming himself after struggling in last week's show.

Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith admitted that they were choosing between George and Lizzie to go home in tonight's ep, and narrowly miss out on next week's quarter final.

And while Lizzie was stronger in the first two tasks in Caramel Week, her final bake disappointed the judges – with Prue branding it "inedible".

Meanwhile, George had the opposite – struggling in the technical before blowing Paul away with his caramel cake and dome made out of sugar.

It was a close call, but George got his marching orders – and he confessed that being sent home was "bittersweet" as at least he'd been "proud" of his final creation in the tent, with Paul even saying that he wanted the recipe.

But viewers at home were less forgiving of the decision, with one fuming: "Imagine being one of the best on the final challenge and still being sent home, absolute bulls**t."

Another complained: "Can’t believe George had to leave after that showstopper."

A third wrote: "What!! How can someone who cooked something described as inedible survive? George made more mistakes but at least you could eat it…"

Justifying the controversial choice, Paul explained: "We are very sad to see George go, but unfortunately he made more mistakes than Lizzie did."

It means that Lizzie will join her competitors to take on Free-From Week, which will see the Bakers battle it out as they make dairy-free, gluten-free, and vegan bakes.
