Alan Carr was one of the four celebrities to appear on The Great Celebrity Bake Off on Tuesday night, and viewers took to Twitter to discuss his hilarious time in the baking tent. Not only did the comedian struggle with the mixer, and his glasses steaming up thanks to the oven, it also turned out that he wasn't the best baker, as his three creations for the competition were met with amused criticism from the judges, Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith.

Alan had viewers in stitches

Speaking about the Rainbow-themed showstopper cake, which featured characters from the TV show including Zippy, George and Bungle on top, one person wrote: "After his version of Rainbow, I want Alan Carr to open a waxworks #GBBO," while another added: "Loving @AlanCarr on #GBBO, especially the crispy sponge." Another fan suggested that each celebrity who struggled during the Bake Off specials should unite for a new episode, writing: "I think we should have a 'best of the worst' episode with Alan Carr, Roisin Conaty, Lee Mack, and of course - Nick Hewer #GBBO #SU2C."

Criminal." A third person joked: "Alan Carr should be arrest for treason, the absolute state of that cup of tea." Alan commented on his own skills on Twitter following the episode. Sharing a photo of himself with his last cake, he wrote: "Robbed. I say robbed!!"
