Vegan Week was always going to be controversial, and last night's episode of The Great British Bake Off certainly stirred discussion in and out of the tent. As well as being one of the most stressful episodes so far (that wonky cake), it also proved to be one of the most divisive, triggering conversations about health, climate change and ... conspiracy theories? 

The toppling cake disaster teased last week turned out to be Ruby's, who watched it droop like a dollop of whipped cream while the other contestants squirmed in shock. Aside from the incident itself, the shots of contestants leaving the tent after presenting their bakes left some people confused and incredibly suspicious. 

Rahul won the technical challenge, making perfect vegan meringues, while the signature challenge saw contestants bake eight savoury tartlets with two types of filling. 

It was the showstopper, however, that almost stopped the show. Kim-Joy was named Star Baker for her delightful fox-themed cake, while Ruby's pink confection ended up looking more like a tribute to Salvador Dali. 

In the end, Jon was sent home, a shock to viewers and contestants alike as he'd been a solid trooper up to that point. To be fair, his chances didn't seem too high from the get go: explaining that he has meat with every meal, he lobbied for a Kebab Week. Oh, what could have been.  

Next week, things get multicultural as the contestants rise to the challenge of Danish Week. We can't wait to see how excited this makes resident Dane, Sandi Toksvig!

Twitter is always on fire during GBBO, but last night was something else... 

Something sweet
