"After almost a year of ups and downs, successes and failures, I will miss being part of the GBBO team so much. I want to thank so many of you who were so kind and supportive via all your messages. I entered the tent as a 'traditional' baker (you heard that many times!) but have come out inspired to try things that I would never have dreamed of. Try it – after all it's only cake! Best wishes, Maggie x."

Poor Maggie forgot to add flour!

Plenty of fans were quick to respond, with one writing: " Lovely lady, just had a bad day at the office, I think even Maggie would concede it would’ve been unfair for anyone else to go ahead of her!!!" Another added: "Maggie, you’re a truly beautiful person inside and out. I hope many more wonderful opportunities and adventures come your way. You truly deserve it."
