The Great British Bake Off’s Ugne Bubnaityte has confessed she was so devastated to be booted off the show, she could not bake for a week.

The Lithuanian body builder became the fifth contestant to be frozen out of the BBC show, after her dairy-free ice cream roll was branded a mess by judges Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry.

The 32-year-old PA was fighting back tears as she served up her melting chocolate, peanut butter and grape jelly offering, with Hollywood declaring: “It looks like you’ve dropped it from 10 feet.”

Berry told her: “It does look a little bit sad, but I know you were trying to show us a lot of skills.”
