The 51-year-old, who went on Bake Off to tackle feelings of anxiety and failure, chatted to camera about his elimination.

"Last night was my turn to leave the tent - boo!" said Marc. "But I feel absolutely fine about it, it was the right decision."

The baker continued by saying that the fan reaction has been "completely overwhelming" and that he "was really humbled".

Marc then expressed his gratitude for his followers' positive messages and comments.

While a third chimed in: "Actually shed tears at Marc's departure. GBBO."

Another viewer questioned the timing of the episode's technical challenge by posting an article by Bake Off judge Paul Hollywood about a Sussex Pond Pudding that recommended a three-hour preparation time.

The post referenced the fact that bakers had been asked to make a 17th-century steamed pudding for the technical task, but were only given a 1.5 hour time slot.

The fan wrote: "Even Paul Hollywood advises three hour steaming! Who approved of one and half hours only? #SetUp.

"The bakers worked miracles," they added.

Marc went on to repost the Instastory to his 19,300 Instagram - which seems to indicate that he agrees with the viewers' point.

The baker has penned a public letter about his time on Bake Off, calling it "just the most crazy, intense, wonderful, once in a lifetime experience".

We don't know about you, but we're emotional wrecks.
