Michael was sent packing from the Bake Off tent tonight after failing to deliver on Festival Week.

After Henry was announced as star baker, Michael's name was called as the one heading home and leaving many in tears.

Host Sandi Toksvig was immediately choked up as she said: "This gets so hard and I'm afraid the person leaving us is Michael."

His fellow bakers were left devastated and immediately surrounded him as he said: "It was my time, it was ok."

However, away from the bakers Michael was in tears and said: "My head is held high and I am so proud."
