ICE cream melted and cakes cracked and split in half, but Somerset vet Rosie stayed solid as another contestant was kicked off the Great British Bake Off.

The fourth episode of the 2019 series saw a new theme for the show, Dairy Week.

The first challenge was a dairy cake, created with a cultured dairy.

Shepton Beauchamp's Rosie Brandreth-Poynter chose to bake a 'Good Dose of Limoncello' cake.

Paul Holywood was an instant fan, and said: "Your use of cultured milk is pot on. The sponge is light and airy, and the lemon comes through."

Rosie also served the cake with a glass of homemade limoncello, which caught the attention of Prue.

The judge, who joined the show when it moved to Channel 4, said: "Rosie, that is beautiful" before pocketing the bottle.

Michael's cake fell apart as he tried to remove it from the tray, leaving him to say it was 'unrescuable' and 'a disaster'.

The technical saw contestants attempt to bake a Maid of Honour, a dessert which dates back to Henry VIII and is filled with curd cheese and a lemon curd.

However, Paul Hollywood instantly came out and declared the entire selection as 'awful'.

Although Paul and Prue were unconvinced by all the offerings, Rosie's had a good taste and she came away with fourth.

Priya only made four instead of ten, they were uncooked and falling apart. The judges didn't even touch them, and when Noel admitted they were a 'car crash' she was left fearing the chop alongside Michael.

The showstopper challenge was to bake a selection of Indian milk sweets called Mishti, a colourful creation commonly found at weddings.

Rosie's cocktail and canapes bake was inspired by the 1920's, and saw her succeed yet again.

Reacting well under pressure, Michael and Priya baked marvellous creations, and it was anyone's guess who would go.

Phil was shocked to become the fourth baker to leave the bake off tent after three below par offerings.

The driver and oldest baker came unstuck during a closely-fought week, which also saw Steph named star baker.

Following in the footsteps of Amelia in Bread Week, Phil admitted the theme of the week left him well 'out of his comfort zone', foreshadowing his departure.

Afterwards, he said: "My worst moment in the tent has to be leaving, as I was a bit shocked to be going.

"When they did announce my name that I was leaving I was deflated admittedly, and disappointed, but at the end of the day someone has to go, it's the way of the competition.

"You just have to be stoic about it and I have got broad shoulders and I knew I would be able to carry it okay."

Judge Paul said: "Phil was particularly shocked, and he had justification to be shocked because it was that tight, it was that close.

"He struggled in his showstopper, which is why sadly, Phil had to leave."

Bake Off returns to Channel 4 at 8pm on September 24.
