The sixth contestant on The Great British Bake Off has exited the show after failing to deliver a "miracle" to judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood.

Warner: spoiler alert!

Alvin Magallanes was eliminated from tonight's episode of the show, which saw the bakers tackling the tricky business of pastry. 

The 37-year old nurse, who struggled with timings throughout the competition, didn't impress the judges with his plum frangipane tart, and came second-to-last position in the technical challenge.

Mary Berry said he would need a "miracle" to save him in the final challenge, but instead he delivered chicken a la king vol-au-vents which were partially "raw", according to Paul Hollywood.

The Great British Bake Off continues on Wednesday September 16 at 8pm on BBC One.
