Episode 5 – Biscuit & Traybake Week – Bakes & Results

At the halfway point of the competition, the remaining bakers had a ‘tuiley’ good time with a range of stunning Showstoppers, although Rob’s Dalek failed to save him from extermination and Frances’ biscuit tower encountered a spot of structural failure. Fortunately Mel was on hand to hold things together – physically and emotionally!
