Controversial former Great British Bake Off contestant Diana Beard has revealed she left the show after losing her sense of smell.
Mrs Beard said she had hit her head in a freak fall after fainting, which had severed her olfactory nerve meaning she could no longer detect scents.
She said she had lost some of her sense of taste as well.
The 69-year-old from Shropshire sparked a storm of criticism accusing her of "sabotaging" fellow contestant Ian Watters' Baked Alaska dish in episode four, after appearing to remove his ice cream creation from the freezer so it would melt.
She said the announcement that she would not be returning for episode five had been brought forward by the BBC, following the outcry against her apparent actions - which she said boiled down to no more than editing.
At least people will know I haven't wimped out. It's a relief, as people now know the truth.
Diana Beard has quit the Great British Bake Off following last night's dramatic ''Baked Alaska-gate" episode.
But the BBC insist her departure from the show is due to illness and not linked to what happened in episode four.
Viewers accused the 69-year-old of "sabotaging" Iain Watters' Baked Alaska by taking his ice cream out of the freezer.
Watters was seen throwing the remains of his bake in the bin before storming off set.
Beard fell ill just before the making of the following episode and had to withdraw on medical grounds.
“Diana will not appear in the rest of the series as she fell ill ahead of filming episode 5 earlier this year,” a BBC spokesman said.
More than 500 people have complained to the broadcaster over the incident.
