Warning! This article contains spoilers about the latest episode of The Great British Bake Off.
Great British Bake Off viewers have been left devastated after a fan favourite was axed from the tent on Tuesday night.
The 31-year-old pharmacy dispenser from London failed to impress over the three challenges, producing some less-than-perfect chocolate brownies in the Signature, struggling with her babka in the Technical, and underbaking her white chocolate cake in the Showstopper.
After exiting the competition, Sura said: “I’m gutted but what’s done is done.
“I’m not going to be bitter about it, I have had a great time.”
She added: “I hate white chocolate, I hate chocolate end of. I don’t think I will ever eat chocolate again.”
There was an outpouring of support for Sura on social media after her exit, having won the hearts of fans with her comic timing and facial expressions, as well as her previous bakes, which had marked her out as an early favourite.
I would have eaten the entirety of Sura’s raw cake to keep her on Bake off tbh #GBBO— Umayyah Zaman (@Umayyah21) October 13, 2020

Oh my god. Devastated.— Lucy Mapstone (@LucyMaps) October 13, 2020
Can Bake Off not bring Sura back as a wildcard later in the series??#BakeOff
It's going to take a while for me to get over Sura leaving bake off. I thank you for your patience in this time.— Neil "phoning a stranger" Harris (@neildownstandup) October 13, 2020
seeing a middle eastern person on screen is rare. everytime there is someone i feel represented and seen. i cant believe sura has gone so early but she left an impact on me and i am sure she will go far. she’s so cute and funny i will miss her so much. #GBBO pic.twitter.com/1QxJs6aWyQ— justice for sura (@sunfIowerbob) October 13, 2020
Really liked Sura, loved her humour too. Gutted to see her go. Think that’s enough emotion for me for one day! #GBBO— Sher (@sherhshaw) October 13, 2020
I'm sad to see Sura go. She's been phenomenal the whole series and had one bad week, when everyone else did too.— Lola (@ladyofthehous3) October 13, 2020
By comparison Lottie has been middle of the road the whole series and also had a bad week.
Seems like they traded a good baker for a mediocre one 🤔#GBBO
Lottie, 31, a pantomime producer from West Sussex, narrowly avoided being axed from the competition, while project manager Mark, 32, was named star baker.
Next week will see the eight remaining bakers tackle Pastry Week, and from the look of the trailer at the end of Tuesday night’s episode, there looks set to be a number of disasters.
In the meantime, you can relive all of Sura’s best bits in a video the official Bake Off Twitter account tweeted below...
The Great British Bake Off continues on Tuesday at 8pm on Channel 4.
