Bake Off fans criticise new judge Prue Leith

Cancer survivor Chris Geiger has become the second Great British Bake Off contestant to leave the tent, after he failed to play a winning hand with his biscuit board game.

Geiger's attempt was so unsuccessful judge Prue Leith spat it out, saying: 'Raw batter's not that much fun.'
