Biscuit week was not the best time in the tent for poor Val on The Great British Bake Off.

Val takes the biscuit on GBBO (Tom Graham/Love Productions/BBC)

From a trayful of ice cream biscuits tipped on the floor to a crumbling Statue Of Liberty, if it could go wrong, it went wrong for Val.

We can confirm that The 5 Second Rule does not apply on #GBBO.

She had the whole nation on the edge of their seats, waiting to see if Val could survive the pressure of biscuit week.

are the BBC prepared to pay for national therapy sessions if Val actually goes #GBBO

Val was ambitious with her “From Holland to New York via Yorkshire” gingerbread story Showstopper that represented her family’s life journey (and included a gingerbread copy of her sister Susan).

“Your sister tastes lovely…” #BiscuitWeek #GBBO

And admittedly it didn’t go well.

“Is that the Statue of Liberty hanging outside?”
“Bless her, she gave up.” #GBBO

In fact, it could only be best compared to a disaster movie aftermath.

Great work, Val! #GBBO

Val has essentially made the gingerbread equivalent of The Day After Tomorrow. #GBBO

Val's looks like a homage to the final scene of 'Planet of the Apes.' #GBBO

What Val needs to do is hastily knock up a biscuit Godzilla, which would explain why her gingerbread buildings are in pieces #GBBO

Val's Statue of Liberty looks like the aftermath of Cloverfield #GBBO

But amazingly Val survived another week. And the crowd went wild.

When your favourite is safe for another week… C'mon Val ❤️ #GBBO

I feel like Val is the hero we all need in our lives. #GBBO

— Lauren Chassebi (@laurenchassebi) August 31, 2016

So in the space of two episodes of #GBBO Val had become a national treasure and we all need to protect her from ever leaving the show

Val for the final!
