She continued: "I will forever cherish my time on The Bake Off. Class of 2020 most definitely had the best summer. We pushed ourselves and our limits. Pushed our own expectations beyond anything we thought we could do and endured the glares of Sir Paul Hollywood! We got a Pruegasm, many laughs, lots of tears but above all, a brilliant once in a lifetime experience that I will cherish forever."

Sura left the tent following Chocolate Week

Fans were very sad to see Sura leave, as one wrote: "I really wished they kept two this week and fired two next week. Sura is the most beautiful and caring and thoughtful member of the tent and seeing her go is devastating." Another added: "She was worth keeping for her facial expressions alone! Shame she’s gone so early, thought she’d have gone much further."

A third person wrote: "Such a lovely, beautiful, talented woman. I feel so sorry for her that she had a bad week, because despite that she produced some absolutely wonderful delights. Don’t give up Sura, you have a gift."

Who do you think will win the series?

Sura left after having a tricky three rounds of baking during Chocolate Week, including making a white chocolate cake which wasn't cooked properly in the middle. While it was announced that she was leaving the show, Matt Lucas said: "It is someone who we are all really fond of but had a bad week, so the baker who will be leaving us this week is... Sura." 

Speaking about her exit, she said: "I am gutted but what's done is done, I'm not going to be bitter about it, I've had a great time."
