Find out how Dudley's Terry fared in Bake Off's bread week

After struggling in the first two episodes, could Terry turn it around in bread week?

Black Country baker Terry has survived another week of the Great British Bake Off – even impressing judges with his naan bread.

The retired air steward from Dudley upped his game after a disappointing start to the competition in the first two episodes.

The 56-year-old managed to do enough with his signature Chelsea buns as the bakers battled with bread week.

And an incredible technical challenge effort saw him win the technical challenge thanks to a garlic naan baked to perfection.

Despite a promising start, Terry's showstopper turned out a failure but judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith felt he'd done enough to avoid the dreaded boot.

As Terry remained on Bake Off, Antony, 29, failed to impress on the third week, which became the banker’s 'doomsday'.

The self-described 'Bollywood baker' became the third to leave the tent after struggling with his showstopper and garlic naans.

Self-doubting Rahul was named as Star Baker for the second time and hailed as a 'little genius' by an impressed Paul Hollywood.

“Paul prowling around the tent made me stupidly nervous as he is the Bread King, so that wrecked my nerves as I wanted to try my best in bread week," Rahul said.

“My family in India are pretty elated about the whole experience. They are so proud of me.

“I can’t believe I was still smiling as I finished the bake, as I felt an emotional wreck.”

Antony said that his expertise did not lie in naans, but another kind of bread.

“Hopefully all my ancestors’ souls are helping me out,” he said when beginning his technical challenge.

After things did not go to plan with the naans, he added: “I’m not from the region that makes naans. We make rotis, which is very different.”

Dan bagged another Hollywood handshake with his 'annoyingly perfect' Chelsea buns, but rising to the challenge of bread week, Rahul was crowned Star Baker.

But he nevertheless received lavish praise from the judges, with Hollywood saying his buns were 'baked to perfection', and, being wowed by his showstopper, said: “That’s fantastic. You are a little genius, Rahul.”

The shy hopeful said of his demeanour: “It’s just me being me. I just feel so scared all the time.”
