The Great British Bake Off fans were delighted when contestant Chigs was awarded star baker by judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith this week.
Dessert week saw a number of contestants including Maggie and Amanda struggle.
Chigs blew the judges away with his bathroom tile inspired showstopper in which the bakers were tasked with making a celebratory jaconde sponge.
After coming third in the technical challenge and receiving positive feedback for his showstopper cake, Chigs was hopeful that he’d be in the running for star baker and was overjoyed when he was awarded it this week.
Viewers at home were equally as happy and took to social media to share their thoughts.
Sana said: “Chigs getting star baker after only learning to bake during lockdown is the cutest thing ever #GBBO”.
@magic_at_mungos said: “Chigs coming up on the outside to get a surprise star baker. But no surprises with Maggie going home #GBBO”.
Joshua Francis wrote: “Go on Chigs get in there! star baker of the week he was absolutely brilliant this week such a deserved winner #GBBO”.
Maggie, Amanda, George and Freya all struggled with the bakes this week as Freya found it difficult to veganise this weeks recipes.
Maggie and Amanda both struggled to bake successfully coming in ninth and eighth in the technical challenge and both suffering a split sponge in the showstopper challenge.
It was eventually revealed that fan favourite Maggie was the next baker to be eliminated from the tent.
