He told how the crew is like a ‘well-oiled machine’ when helping out on bakes[/caption]
The semi-finalist – who was booted off before reaching Bake Off’s grand finale – spoke about the time constraints of certain bakes – and how the crew help out.

“I mean I’m talking like I did that, but I’ve never really practised much, but if you practice at home, a lot of the time you would know you can complete something in two hours, but practising at home and actually taking it in the tent are completely different.
“In the tent something would always happen. It could be the temperature, you forget to turn on your oven, or something doesn’t turn out as you practised at home.
“So there’s different elements to it all when you’re baking in the tents, but you do have two hours to complete it.”
Yet giving insight into the tips and tricks of the Bake Off trade, he continued: “There are always people running around which you don’t get to see. There are so many people behind the cameras making this work, it’s a really well oiled machine where everyone is, you know, helping us and taking away all of our empty stuff.

“So if you’re trying to make a meringue and it fails, you can ask for more egg whites more sugar.
“But you don’t see any of that!”
