Candice Brown, 31, who worked as a PE teacher at Chancellor’s School in Brookmans Park, from September 2009 until August

2014, will be in the semi-final tonight for Patisserie Week, with just three other bakers remaining.

The BBC states online: “In the signature challenge, the bakers are once again butter-bashing and folding their pastry to achieve perfect lamination for a difficult French pastry.

“In the technical challenge, Paul has set the bar high. He is testing the bakers’ patisserie prowess with a yeast-based cake that has a fruity top and delicate chocolate work.

“The show-stopper is the bakers’ last chance to prove they have what it takes to make it to the final, with a multiple mini-cake bake. The timings are crucial to achieve the high-end finish the judges are looking for.”

Don’t miss the show on BBC 1 tonight at 8pm.
