The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up To Cancer aired a surprise on Tuesday, as a contestant quit the contest mid-show.

Big Narstie was forced to ditch the baking special halfway through, before he got to take part in the showstopper challenge.

In a show first, host Sandi Toksvig had to step in and bake with other contestants comedian Johnny Vegas, Olympian Katarina Johnson-Thompson and Labour MP Jess Phillips.

Rapper Big Narstie was a hit with fans as he caused havoc in the baking tent, and completed two tasks.

But the next day ahead of the final round, presenter Noel Fielding was forced to break the news to his co-stars he would not be back.

He revealed he was under the weather, and too ill to return to the tent and complete filming.

Viewers raced to Twitter after the news, with many confessing they were devastated not to see him go all the way.

One fan said: “Only reason I was watching #gbbo was for Big Narstie and now he's not in it. Blokes hilarious.”

Another tweeted: “Is there any point watching rest of #GBBO @BritishBakeOff now there’s no Big Narstie?”

A third commented: “Gutted Big Narstie couldn’t make day two of the bake off! He got into the spirit of it all!”

Another asked: “Just switched on #GBBO where is Big Narstie?”
