The retired Merchant Navy radio operator was asked to leave the show after having pastry issues on tonight's tarts and pies themed show.

Norman served up raw pastry in his pear tarte au citron and judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood found the pastry in his showstopping Norman's Pieffel Tower was too crumbly.

Norman, 66, said: "I really didn't want to go as I was enjoying it so much, but admittedly I did mess up a wee bit.

"I didn't go into Bake Off for the fame, I just wanted to have a bit of excitement in my life. The most memorable part for me was that Mary Berry liked my bakes."
