This week's tense quarter- final battle saw five bakers become four.
The contestants were asked to make delicate French fancies, followed by a mountainous choux pastry masterpiece.
But patisserie week was too much for Paul, who left the competition and the Bake Off tent.
Next week, the remaining bakers will take on chocolate challenges, so who are the semi-finalists ?
The semi-final will air on BBC One on Wednesday 30 September at 8pm.
