The Great British Bake Off threw up a number of shocks last night.

In a move that's only happened once before, the Channel 4 series ended the episode by sending no-one home.

Bake Off contestant Terry missed last night's show due to illness, and it was revealed that with the agreement of everyone, he would be able to move on to next week's show, despite missing Dessert Week.

However, judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith surprised everyone by deciding to save all the bakers, saying that it wasn't fair to send someone home as Terry wasn't there. Plus, there was no-one who particularly deserved to head home more than anyone else.

That decision wasn't a huge surprise to everyone watching at home, though. Some eagle-eyed fans noticed an editing gaffe in the middle of the showstopper round, which appeared to show the moment when all the bakers had just been told they were safe.

The error came just after Paul and Prue had finished judging Rahul's showstopper, and when Rahul was seen backing away from the judging table, the scene quickly showed a clip of the bakers sat in their end-of-episode line-up, as they jumped for joy, with host Sandi Toksvig and Paul going over to hug them.

Whoops! Watch the moment in the video above.

Still, it's not as bad as last year when Prue accidentally revealed the winner on Twitter before it was aired on TV!
