Great British Bake Off's Ruby left in tears after her cake collapses during Vegan Week
"It's a cruel, cruel world."
The Great British Bake Off had its first ever Vegan Week this week - leaving one of the contestants in tears.
And after temperatures (and tensions) had been heating up all episode, it seemed like things were finally back on track as the clock on the show stopper ended.
For their final challenge of the week, the bakers were tasked with making a celebration cake - without any dairy.

The final six contestants stepped outside of the tent to get some fresh air, which is when they noticed Ruby's show stopper - a lemon, chocolate and coconut cake - was starting to lose its head.
Haven’t cried in years and all it took was my cake to fall over. It’s official - bake off you broke me 😭😭😭 that was a toughie to watch. Off to cry again, bye. #GBBO

The other bakers looked on in horror as the top layer of her cake fell, with presenter Noel Fielding delivered the news to Ruby - who burst into tears after hearing what had happened.
And viewers were equally as heartbroken for Ruby, who had been finding the challenges for the seventh week difficult.

It wasn't all bad news, though.
Despite the collapse, Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood both loved the "delicious" cake - and Ruby was safe for another week.
And she wasn't the only one of the bakers that suffered a technical problem, with the top layer of Rahul's cake also falling during the last challenge.
Ultimately, though, both of them were safe - and Jon was the baker that was sent home.
