Perthshire’s Michael Chakraverty was on a roll during bread week on the Great British Bake Off, having been crowned star baker.
This was despite his initial lack of confidence about making bread.
During the show, Michael – who was brought up in Scone – said he had “bread dread”.
Judging Michael’s bread, Paul Hollywood liked what the contestant had done overall.
On completing the challenges of bread week on the Channel Four programme, Michael said: “I think it didn’t go badly, which is good.”
Sportswear designer Amelia became the third baker to leave the tent.
She said she knew bread would be her weakness on the show, and failed to impress with her burger buns in the technical challenge, or her scored bread in the showstopper.
She said: “It’s no surprise to me that I left on bread week, it’s never been my strength.
“I didn’t rise to the challenge of bread week exactly, but I literally had so much fun.
“I tried my best and I would like to think that I have proved I’m a good baker.”
Hollywood said of her efforts: “Amelia is a decent baker and it showed in her showstopper – her idea was sound enough but it just wasn’t executed very well, and she struggled in the signature.”
Being sent home by Hollywood and fellow judge Prue Leith, Amelia said exiting the tent has felt like the end of a relationship.
She said: “The whole process of leaving the tent felt a bit like a break up.
“The sadness, the denial, a bit of it’s not you it’s me, so you have to remind yourself it’s still an amazing achievement.”
