The Great British Bake Off attendees all stayed safe for another week after two bakers missed bread week due to illness.
Rebs Lightbody, 23, and Abdul Rehman Sharif, 29, weren’t in the infamous tent this week – but judge Prue Leith revealed it means a double elimination is imminent in the near future.
Satisfied presenter Matt Lucas told the Bakers: “Well nobody’s going home this week. Given the quality here and the fact that Rebs and Abdul aren’t here, the judges felt everyone deserved the chance to bake again.”

Back to Earth: Rebs Lightbody and Abdul Rehman Sharif weren’t in the infamous tent this week – but judge Prue Leith revealed it means a double elimination is in the offing
But Prue broke the news: “They were all overjoyed because no one had to leave.
“They’re all friends, they don’t want to see their friends go home, but sooner or later we have to send two bakers home, and that’s not nice.”
Bread week – what many describe as the toughest of the twelve at Bake Off – was as always a tough one for attendees this year, but 60-year-old Dawn was particularly concerned after her performance.
The Bedfordshire IT manager said: “Bread week was an embarrassment. I’ve hit rock bottom this week, I’m really worried.’

Man of the hour: 34-year-old Janusz, on the other hand, was named Star Baker in the competition for the second time
Compliments: Paul Hollywood said of his performance: “Janusz is very artistic, almost illusionary in some of his cakes. He’s smart and he’s certainly one to watch in the future.

In episode three, the eight remaining contestants baked two signature pizzas, a technical challenge to prepare a pain aux raisin and a “savory Swedish” showstopper casserole.
Many people on Twitter found the showstopper to be the exact opposite of its name – with users saying it made them “sick” and comparing the cookies to Rachel’s trifle on US sitcom Friends.

Rebs and Abdul will return to the show in next week’s episode.
It comes as fans last week complained about Northern Ireland student Rebs, 23, who asked fellow bakers for their help making macarons, Garibaldi biscuits and a biscuit mask.
When she made her cat-themed macaroons, she was given multiple hands on deck to help get them across the finish line.
One person said on Twitter: “Ban on helping #GBBO. This is the only way it will be fair.”
Rebs was nervous after realizing her mix for her macarons – which was modeled after her own 15-year-old cat – hadn’t turned out quite right on her first try.
She decided to start over, leaving her far behind the other contestants; most people’s creations were decorated while theirs were still cooking in the oven.
Great British Bake Off viewers all had the same complaint after the second episode of the Channel 4 program – with some saying bakers shouldn’t help each other (pictured).
