Great British Bake Off: Lottie is eliminated in week 80


Lottie Bedlow was the last candidate to be eliminated in the episode of The Great British Bake Off on Tuesday.

The 31-year-old mime producer failed to impress the judges with her show stopper for ice cream cakes on one of the hottest days of the year after the show was recorded in the summer.

With the judges calling her crowd “overwhelming” and “terrible”, Lottie was both “relived” and “gutted” as she left the tent.

Tuesday's episode followed an 80s theme where attendees were tasked with making quiches, custard and jam finger donuts, and an ice cream cake show stopper.

But Lottie's ambitious plans for a chocolate mixtape-shaped ice cream cake were thwarted by the heat in the tent on one of the hottest days of the year.

Judge Paul Hollywood warned the contestant about her creation, but Lottie decided to move on with her show stopper, which didn't freeze and melt on the table in time.

During the feedback, Paul said he was "very underutilized" by the ice cream cake.

Oh man! The 31-year-old mime producer failed to impress the judges with her ice cream cake show stopper on one of the hottest days of the year after the show was recorded in the summer
