Find out how our local bakers got on in batter week

After hitting the headlines this week, lovers of The Great British Bake Off were able to sit down and watch some baking, rather than worry for the show’s future.

Plans to move the show from BBC to Channel 4 were announced just days ago, but on Wednesday night the attention was firmly back on the kitchen, to find out how Kent’s bakers got on.

This week Jane Beedle from Beckenham and Rav Bansal from Erith both faced the new challenge of batter week - a first in the show’s six year history.

Beckenham’s baker was the first to wow judges Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry, with her ‘meat and two veg’ filling inside her Yorkshire puddings.

Despite acclaim from Hollywood, Jane’s Yorkshires failed to rise and couldn’t claim top spot in the opening round.

Rav faced a difficult episode, and was even considered as one of the contenders to go after a nightmare technical round was followed by a similarly disappointing array of churros in the showstopper round.

But the Erith baker managed to scrape through to next week, as the judges deemed Kate Barmby the weakest baker of the week and she was sent home.

Meanwhile a sterling performance from Croydon’s Benjamina Ebuehi granted her the star baker crown for this week.
