What happened to Marc on The Great British Bake Off?

Although he has been a favourite with viewers throughout the 2020 series of the Channel 4 baking competition, Marc struggled with all three rounds during Dessert Week.

This week, the remaining hopefuls had to create bakes including a miniature cheesecake and a jelly art dessert cake.

However, Marc’s jelly cake showstopper was the worst, with judge Paul Hollywood telling him: “It’s overdone, this… it’s like concrete.

“Your chocolate is too hard, the mousse is split… the jelly is too rubbery.”

Viewers who felt gutted over Marc going home called the judges’ decision a ‘travesty’ and ‘outrageous’, with some claiming either Peter or David should have gone.
