The Great British Bake Off viewers were left devastated on Tuesday night as Jairzeno was the second contestant to be eliminated after his showstopper didn't go to plan.

During the episode, the bakers had to create a 3D biscuit replica of their favourite childhood toy to which Jairzeno decided to create a tall ship.

However, after it crumbled and a sail appeared to fall away, Jairzeno left judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith unimpressed.

Talking after his creation fell apart, the contestant joked: "Oh no, it's more like a shipwreck than a ship!"

During judging, Paul commented: "Looks a bit rough and ready!" but praised the baker for his flavours in the biscuit.

Speaking after his exit was revealed, Jairzeno said: "I was half expecting that result, because if you look at the showstopper compared to everyone else's… mine was quite basic."

Tuesday's episode, which was Biscuit Week, saw the bakers have to create brandy snaps, jammy biscuits and then a showstopper replica of their favourite childhood toy.

Taking to Twitter, fans shared their devastation for the contestant leaving the tent.

One person said: "Injustice How dare they. Jairzeno is a national treasure!! #gbbo."

A different account put: "Jairzeno will miss you!!! #GBBO."

Another follower commented: "Jairzeno was so lovely! Sad to see him go."

While a different account added: "Oh nooooo Jairzeno [upset emoji] Well done for getting this far. Biscuit Week is a tough one #GBBO."

Elsewhere during the episode, Jürgen was announced as Star Baker for the second time in a row.

It comes after Tom was the first contestant to be eliminated from the 2021 series of The Great British Bake Off last week.

During the opening episode the theme was Cake Week and the 12 bakers had to create 12 mini rolls, a malt loaf technical challenge and gravity-defying illusion cake as the showstopper challenge.

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