For four weeks the nurse from Norfolk fought valiantly to stay in the competition, but it seems batter week proved to be too much for Kate Barmby. Here's what fans thought of her departure from the show.
The latest season of The Great British Bake Off has seen the contestants take on cakes, biscuits and bread, but surprisingly batter seemed to be the toughest challenge of all, as the bakers struggled with their Yorkshire Puddings, failed at making pancakes and caused chaos with their churros much to the delight of viewers.
Norfolk's very own Kate Barmby had the worst week by far, being sent home by judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood, despite their claims that she wasn't the worst baker in the competition.
In her final episode, the 37-year-old created Christmas inspired Yorkshires, attempted lacy pancakes and made hot cross bunny churros which in an amusing turn of events led her to proclaim she was a 'bunny boiler' a feat some viewers thought should have earned her an automatic spot on next week's show.
Despite her efforts, the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital Nurse couldn't do enough to impress the judges, but did she impress you?
