She may love a flowery bomber jacket, but Mary Berry is struggling to adapt to 21st century Britain.

The thought of coconut, or - heaven forbid - Jacobfruit entering the tent proves too much for the 80 year old this week.

Enjoy Mary’s withering glare stares:

1. Mary Berry only just learnt what a jackfruit was

'I can't wait to taste it'

That’s what writing 60 cook books does to you.

2. And seemed reviled at Nadiya’s ‘exotic’ biscotti

“So where did the inspiration for all this come from?”

3. Ugne’s box was also “too garish” for her

“It’s just a bit over the top”

4. But at least Paul is beginning to flirt with Ugne

“I don’t like them, I love them”. Move over, Ruby Tandoh.

The Filipino-born nurse was close to tears after presenting his incomplete showstopper.

6. The other Paul is also a heartbreaker

Contestant Paul dedicated his pink macaroons to his wife. Aw.

Professor Kate Williams got very involved in the garibaldi.

8. Marie is a “silly, silly woman”

The loveable grandmother figure was not impressed with her performance on the Arlette technical challenge.

9. Tamal hasn’t grown out of the sarcastic teenage stage

“They’re really helpful instructions actually, they just say ‘make the dough’, which is great.”

10. Sandy is a babe

Enough said.

11. Nadia doesn’t go down without a fight…

But at least confessed to headteacher Paul.
