Bearded Northern Irishman Iain Watters reportedly has a meltdown and storms off the Great British Bake Off on Wednesday night.

According to the Mirror, the quietly spoken construction engineer is in a state when he ruins his Baked Alaska. He hurls it in the bin and then storms out of the tent, leaving Mary Berry visibly shocked.

A source said: “It is genuinely jaw-dropping stuff. Bake Off has never seen anything like it before and producers doubt they will again.

“It is captivating stuff and a guaranteed ratings winner.”

But has Iain departed from the Bake Off for good? Watch tonight at 8pm on BBC1.
