Professional musician Stuart Henshall admitted he was disappointed after becoming the first contestant to be axed from this year's The Great British Bake Off.

The 35-year-old rocker was eliminated from the BBC cooking competition after failing to impress judges Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry with his experimental take on a Black Forest Gateau, which he made using beetroot.

But he doesn't plan to adopt their more traditional recipes in the future. Henshall said: "In the future I will make Black Forest Gateau my way.

"Maybe I should have made it in more a traditional way for Mary, she is awesome and I have followed her recipes for years, and Paul's."
