‘Today just wasn’t your day, while the flavours of your cheesecake were great, it just wasn’t the right dish for the challenge,’ Melissa said.

‘I’m really sorry that’s why you’re going home,’ she explained.

During the 60-minute challenge, Dami didn’t have enough time to cook and cool her cake due to the time limit.

Before presenting the dish, the singer admitted she wasn’t sure wether her dish was cooked through.

‘I am worried about my basque cheesecake. You know, I’m scared that it might not be cooked through, so I just really don’t know what it’s gonna be on the inside,’ she said.

Following her elimination, Dami told 10Play: ‘I was really scared because dessert is definitely not my strength, so having to do that for an elimination was just so scary.’

‘I hadn’t really made much dessert in my life. I normally make the dinner and my friends bring the dessert and that’s how it’s always done in my life.’

Dami revealed her friend, who is a baker, taught her how to make the cake.

‘I hadn’t really practiced it, so I just did it and I was hoping it would work but it didn’t,’ she said.
