An enthusiastic baker was booted off the hit cooking show, The Great British Bake Off last night (August 13).

Enwezor Nzegwu, who is originally from Harrow, left the BBC1 programme following the second episode broadcast yesterday evening (August 13).

The challenge was to make a 3D biscuit scene, but the 39 year-old failed to impress the judges with his space age design.

The father-of-four spoke of his early departure from the show, he said: "It is a bit of a shock, what an experience, I would have loved to stay on longer but that's the way it goes.

"I can't feel any shame or disappointment about going out now when I gave it everything I had."

All the action takes place inside a catering tent pitched this series in Berkshire.

Enwezor, who is half Nigerian and half Japanese, now lives in Southsea in Hampshire and works at the nearby University of Portsmouth as a business consultant in the information services department.

Judge, Paul Hollywood said: "It's unfortunate to see Enwezor go, there was some style there, you don't get inside that tent unless you are a good baker and he is a very good baker."

The first contestant to go was Claire Goodwin, who was kicked off the show last week.
