Why did Big Narstie have to leave the Great Celebrity Bake Off halfway?

Viewers of Stand Up to Cancer’s Great Celebrity Bake Off were surprised during last night’s episode (Tuesday, March 19th) as Big Narstie had to leave halfway through the show.

No one knows what happened to the rapper and media personality, but fans are hilariously speculating on Twitter.

Here’s how the show went down.

Judges (L-R): Paul Hollywood, Sandi Toksvig, Prue Leith and Noel Fielding.

When did Big Narstie leave?

Despite cracking up the judges with his, let’s say, inventive creations, Big Narstie was certainly not going to be the star baker of the show.

He completed the first two rounds, but then co-presenter Noel announced he would not be partaking in the third round.

Oh, how we would have liked to see Big Narstie’s attempt at a showstopper!

What actually happened to Big Narstie?

Noel revealed to the other contestants and viewers at home that Big Narstie was too ill to return to the tent to complete the third round.

Big Narstie has yet to release a statement on why he left the bake off tent.

We will update this page with any new information about his departure.

What have the fans thought?

Fans have taken to Twitter to speculate on where Narstie went.

One viewer jokingly questioned whether Big Narstie was “ill because he ate so many of his bubble gum shortbreads?”.

Some were more sceptical and claimed he “couldn’t be bothered turning up”.

Either way, Big Narstie was a hilarious addition to the Bake Off tent and Sandi Toksvig took over for him in the role of ‘Little Narstie’.
