She added to Paul Hollywood: ‘I am proud, it’s happy tears. I can’t wait to go home and walk my dogs!’

Fellow baker Crystelle, who has made it to the semi-final was clearly heartbroken for her pal, giving her a big hug.

Fans are also gutted, with one writing: ‘Having a little cry about losing @lizzieacker_ from #GBBO it’s amazing how invested one gets in this little baking show. Lizzie you did yourself proud.’

‘Justice for Lizzie,’ another declared, while one more said: ‘So sad to see Lizzie go tonight.’

It was a controversial decision for some, with judges Paul and Prue Leith admitting they had to decide who to eliminate based on ‘who deserves their place in the semi-final’ despite it previously being insisted that bakers were judges on a week-to-week basis.
