Viewers of the Great British Bake Off were saddened but not surprised as Maggie was the latest baker eliminated from the show.
The 70-year-old retired midwife had a difficult week, having struggled with most of the challenges, leaving her in last place at the end of Tuesday’s episode.
She had used the wrong flour while making her sticky toffee pudding, before taking her joconde sponge out of the oven too soon.
Though she went to all the effort of completely remaking her strawberry-patterned creation, it wasn’t enough to save her in the end.
After it was announced that she would be leaving, Maggie told viewers: ‘The whole thing has been so fun and just to be part of it is a complete joy.’
She joked: ‘Nothing can beat delivering a baby and bringing a new life into the world but it comes second!’
