Bake Off fans fuming as Lottie is axed after Laura’s disastrous ice cream cake

Bake Off fans were left furious last night as Lottie became the seventh baker to leave the tent.

The West Sussex native shed a few tears when hosts Matt Lucas and Noel Fielding read out her name, hugging her fellow bakers as she took her leave.

She had even been named Star Baker last week.

And Lottie was given the boot despite Laura being the firm favourite to leave after suffering a disaster of an ice cream cake.

As part of 80s week, the bakers were tasked with crafting ice cream cakes, notoriously difficult to make.

What’s more, they had to pull it off while filming on the hottest day of the year.

Lottie shed a few tears when she left the tent

“It’s like a massive release,” a tearful Lottie told the camera, “but obviously I am gutted.

“I literally had packed two outfits, and here I am in Week Seven wearing everyone else’s clothes.

“I cannot believe the stuff that I have done. I got a handshake and a Star Baker – maybe I can bake.”

Noel and Matt told Lottie that she’d be leaving the tent

Fans took to Twitter to fume over the decision to axe Lottie.

“We are going to miss you Lottie!” one blubbed.

“Lottie you were robbed!” another claimed.

A third sobbed: “I was CONVINCED Lottie would win @BritishBakeOff this year. I am gutted.”

Meanwhile, a fourth raged: “Lottie not Laura? FFS it’s ridiculous!”

The show also saw the bakers whip up a classic quiche and custard doughnuts, before the ice cream cake technical.

Matt told Hermine that she’d been crowned Star Baker.

Lottie said after the show: “Well I think the Curse of the Star Baker truly struck – it really did! I had run out of oomph by that stage, and I knew it was my time to go.

“I knew a 100% before it was announced that it would be me leaving and I think all the other Bakers were fully aware.”

*The Great British Bake Off continues on Tuesday at 8pm on Channel 4.
