THERE was tension in the Great British Bake Off tent as dessert week saw some rise and others flop.

Contestant Jon Jenkins from Newport wowed the judges with his mango and passion fruit roulade during the episode's first challenge.

Judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith said it had a "fabulous flavour" was so good it earned Mr Jenkins a handshake from Paul Hollywood.

The technical challenge saw the contestants tackle the retro dessert, blancmange, and it divided the tent as some failed to set.

During the blind tasting the judges said that Hawaiian shirt wearing Mr Jenkins' creation was "lovely" and praised his biscuits, and as a result he placed in the top four.

In the final showstopper challenge the contestants had to create a giant chocolate globe that melts away to reveal the dessert within.

Some of the contestants who had not excelled managed to redeem themselves with their creations.

Inspired by his daughters, Mr Jenkins made a ballet cake and presented his globe filled with an eleven-layered opera cake it dressed in a flowing full-sized pink tutu with ballet shoes, he even wore a matching tutu to take the cake to the judges for tasting.

During baking fellow contestant Ruby had a disaster with her chocolate, but Jon was able to step in to help her and in doing so gained huge admiration on social media.

Because one of the contestants was sick nobody left the show, but it could mean that two will leave next week.

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