A MUSIC teacher from Pershore stole the nations heart with his can do attitude and fun on screen presence but alas his baking was not up to scratch and he was eliminated from the Great British Bake Off last night.

Rowan Williams was the one to go during bread week.

Rowan has become the third amateur baker to be eliminated from the Great British Bake Off.

The 55-year old from Worcestershire failed to impress judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith during Tuesday's bread-themed episode.

In a comedy put-down, Paul Hollywood described Rowan’s soda bread as “like eating lemon drizzle cake in a sandstorm”.

And his tree-shaped showstopper, inspired by the black pears of Worcestershire, was dubbed “all style and no substance”.

"I've had a wonderful time. It is exhausting, but very rewarding," he said as he left the tent.

Reflecting on his exit, Rowan said: “I feel very content. I have had a wonderful time. It’s been exhausting, but very rewarding.

“But I didn’t mind leaving. I felt like I went out on a high because I really tried my best with the showstopper.”

There was a mixed reaction to Rowan's exit on twitter last night.

One Rowan fan tweeted: "But Rowan was the one we had to protect at all cost."

Another said: "Rowan was a character but I think that’s the problem - I love Bake Off because it’s always been about the baking, not reality tv-style drama and he was just not on the level of the others."


And another twitter user said: "Finally! Loved the bread plaque from Rowan, it was beautiful, but it was time for him to go."
