Pastry week has proved disastrous for Alvin Magallanes, who was unable to perform the "miracle" he needed to keep himself in the Great British Bake Off.

The amateur baker quickly found himself in trouble when the contestants had to produce a short-crust pastry tart with frangipane as their "signature bake".

His plum frangipane tart failed to impress judges Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry.

His final chance for redemption was the showstopper challenge. His chicken a la King vol-au-vents failed to impress, with Hollywood pointing out raw parts, and Berry complaining she was "not getting much flavour" from the salmon - though she called the chicken vol-au-vents "delicious".
