The Great British Bake Off's latest eliminated baker has paid tribute to the "rewarding" show in a heartwarming goodbye note.

On tonight's episode (October 3), Keith became the second baker to be sent home, with his dreams crumbling thanks to a disappointing biscuit week performance.

The show's official X/Twitter account shared a note from Keith following his elimination, and he had nothing but praise for the show and his fellow bakers.

"Participating in the Great British Bake Off has been the most fantastic and rewarding experience of my life, and I've loved every singe minute of it," Keith wrote.

"It's been a huge privilege for me to be included in the mix with some exceptionally talented individuals, and I honestly feel I've improved as a person from the time I've spent in their company.

"If I've learnt anything it is to embrace every step of the Bake Off journey and not to underbake your biscuits."

Keith's note echoed his cheery comments on the show following his elimination, where he said: "I feel fine — there's nothing sad about this moment. I've had the most fantastic time."

Week one of the baking competition saw Amos eliminated from the show — with The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice guest Stephen Mangan later revealing he and Amos had a personal connection.

"I know one of the bakers. I had no idea they were in it when they came on. Amos worked at a deli for years on my street," Mangan said on the show.

"I'd see him all the time, so as soon as he came up I was like, 'Amos! I am going to enjoy watching you over the next few weeks'. And it wasn't to be — it's an outrage.”

The Great British Bake Off airs on Channel 4 in the UK. In the US, it's known as The Great British Baking Show and streams on Netflix.
