GBBO's Sura brushes off upside-down cake drama with nod to eliminated contestant

The Great British Bake Off contestant Sura has already brushed off that pineapple upside-down cake drama.

Last night, the show made a triumphant return to our screens, where kitchen disasters were already happening in the tent – with one nightmare proving to be bigger than the Baked Alaska-gate.

When walking up to the judging table, Sura placed down her plate of perfectly baked goods before trying to chase off a fly from landing on them.

However, when wafting her hands around in the air, she accidentally nudged her fellow contestant Dave who saw his cakes splat all over the floor.

‘I’m so sorry! Oh my God,’ Sura cried out at the time as she desperately tried to rescue one of his batch.

Keeping his cool, Dave told her not to worry as he casually walked away from the mess.

 

 

And while Twitter was in hysterics, with viewers stirring up controversy that it was Sura’s plan all along to sabotage her competition, the baker was quick to take to Instagram where she brushed right over the incident.

‘What a first episode,’ the pharmacy dispenser wrote alongside a selfie. ‘I’m overwhelmed with all the lovely messages so thank you.’

Turning her attention to Loriea, who was the first contestant booted off the competition, the 31-year-old pressed: ‘Ps I missed @loriea_cc contagious laugh in the tent and it was so lovely to hear it again!

‘How amazing we’re all of those cakes??? I can also confirm @laura.adlington‘s Freddy tasted delicious as did @thebakingbuddha Darwin. Can’t wait till next week!!!’

While Sura won the technical challenge, it was 20-year-old Peter who was crowned the season’s first star baker after crafting three successful bakes.

New host Matt Lucas who replaced Sandi Tosvig this year, had the honour of announcing the good news, while it was Noel Fielding who sent home Loriea.

On leaving the tent, the radiographer said: ‘I was happy with what I baked and I wouldn’t have changed anything, everything happens for a reason.

‘A bittersweet moment was that I wouldn’t have been able to go to my grandmother’s funeral if I had still been in the tent. 

‘So the timing was right that I left the tent when I did, as it meant I could be with my family and give a farewell to my grandmother.’

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