It's Bread Week once again, and the eight remaining bakers rise to a series of doughy challenges. 

The bakers showed off their personalities in a Signature Bake that saw them put their own spin on an Eastern European favourite. Then, they had to keep their heads during a tricky Technical, before trying to wow the judges with a sculptural Showstopper.
