THE Great British Bake Off is back with a bang as the first episode descended into chaos when Amanda and Chigs’ showstopper cakes COLLAPSED.
It was a dramatic start to the series as not one, but TWO cakes fell to the floor.
Sales manager Chigs, 40, saw his creation crumble after being tasked to make an “anti-gravity illusion cake”.
Matt Lucas helped carry Chigs’ teapot over to the judges, as he warned: “It’s going to break, it’s going to break…”
Seconds after putting it down on the table and letting go, the cake split and toppled over.
Meanwhile 56-year-old Met Police detective Amanda’s cake managed to stay upright while it was tested by judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith.
But as she returned to her baking bench, Amanda’s cake dramatically fell to the floor.
Elsewhere, Jurgen won star baker, while Tom was booted out of the competition in the first week.
