It’s the crucial moment in any episode of Bake Off.

And it seems the prospect of falling at the final hurdle got to this week’s contestants on The Great Celebrity Bake Off, as Stacey Solomon and Perri Kiely struggled to keep their nerve.

Attempting to make a unicorn-themed dessert, Loose Women star Stacey was left panicing as the timer clicked towards zero in the pavilion.

Struggling with the more intricate side of the profiterole-style tower, she was left flapping as Paul Hollywood and prue Leith strutted around, casting their eye over each contestants bake.

Perri was faring a little better, seemingly able to see the funny side of things as he struggled to whip up a sculpture of himself.

The main obstacle for the dancer was his famous curly locks.

Doing his best to whip up some spun sugar, things went slightly awry as his inexperience showed when it came to the more intricate and complex parts of the challenge.

But if there was another person feeling ever more pressure, it was Lord Sugar’s former right hand man Nick Hewer, who cocked his mix up from the get go – leaving him trailing with some very flat buns.

Five attempts left him, in his own words, ‘looking an absolute idiot’.

Maybe it was a sign that he should have stuck to hostile takeovers?

The writing was on the wall for Nick.

Despite worrying about the state of his self-portrait Peri was praised by Paul for his ‘creativity’. In fact, he received so many positive comments that he treated the judges to a backflip.

Stacey’s unicorn-themed tower didn’t impress Paul, but she was praised for the decoration.

Ricky Wilson meanwhile faired quite well, managing to get positive comments.

Nick was universally panned, explaining that he went through 23 eggs to provide the judges with his questionable bake, which he urged them not to eat.
