Dorret Conway has become the third contestant to leave the Great British Bake Off after failing to impress the judges with her bread sculpture based on Tracey Emin’s famous unmade bed.

The news did not come as a surprise to some viewers, after Mary Berry accidentally let slip that the accountant from Preston would leave the show on Chris Evans’ BBC2 Breakfast Show.

“Well, we’ve already lost two, you don’t hang around do you, Mary?” Evans said, to which Berry replied: “Wait a minute, we’ve lost three. We lost Marie last week, Dorret and on the first week it was our lovely chap with his little hat on.”

The judges said Dorret’s “My Bed” raisin and fennel dough sculpture “looked untidy” and “was not worth five hours’ work”. The dough in the middle of her marzipan and apricot mattress was also raw.

 

Dorret, who admitted she had not practised the showstopper at home before making it in the tent, also struggled in the signature bake with her four French baguettes, which were too soft and the wrong shape.
