Bake Off fans thrilled as Noel Fielding returns after sudden absence mid-episode

Baffled Great British Bake Off fans have shared their relief after Noel Fielding made a swift return to the hit Channel 4 show following his sudden absence half way through last week’s show.

As it approaches the half way point of the series, viewers tuned in for the latest instalment of the hit Channel 4 show while they prepared to take on pastry week.

But fans were concerned they wouldn’t see their favourite stand-up comic who was missing from the final challenge last Tuesday.

During German week, which saw Giuseppe named Star Baker for the second time in a row, the 48-year-old excused himself from during the elimination round due to a sudden illness.

It fell to his co-host Matt Lucas to announce which baker was crowned Star Baker and who would be leaving the hit baking competition, which saw the youngest contestant Freya leave the iconic bake-off tent.

Matt explained to the bakers that Noel was feeling “a little under the weather” as the show continued without the raven-haired comic.

And with no further explanation given to his sudden absence, several viewers questioned whether Noel was okay and whether he would be appearing on next week’s show.

One user penned: “Oh Noel on #GBBO looked extra pale and now they’ve said he’s not well. Hope #NoelFielding is okay?”

Another added: “Now I can’t focus on the showstoppers??!! WHERE’S NOEL, is he okay??!! #GBBO” as a third quipped: “I must have missed it, where did Noel disappear to? #GBBO.”

But as loyal viewers tuned in for Tuesday night’s episode as the show approaches the half way point of the series, viewers shared their joy as Noel returned to the show happy and healthy.

One user penned: “NOEL’S BACK NOEL’S BACK! #GBBO,” as others couldn’t help but share their excitement over his latest fashion number.

Another added: “I am absolutely obsessed with Noel’s shirt tonight. The man’s shirt game is untouchable. #GBBO.”

A third chimed in with: “Nice to see Noel up and about after last week #GBBO.”
