A third person joked: "Chris Eubank would have won with this lot. Even if he cooked that lump of boiled butternut squash each time. #celebritymasterchef." Another viewer felt that Kirsty perhaps shouldn’t have made it through, tweeting: "Kirsty served up a salad, put a pancake in the oven and turned her rice into a puck. How did she survive? Definitely have their faves."

Clarke was sadly sent home

Gregg Wallace and John Torode eventually sent Clarke home, who said: "Is that a trip?! Yes, I'm so glad that I came along and gave it a go. I wanted to challenge myself, push myself, and I have. I'm not leaving with nothing, I have gained something more, and that's what I'm happy for."

Fans claimed that the show was fixed in mid-August after many viewers pointed out that Chris Eubank received help on his dishes on the show, while Cliff Parasi wasn’t allowed any. At the time, one person wrote: "Love #celebritymasterchef but Chris Eubank is being lead by the hand through it… Cliff much better but given no help at all," while another added: "Why are John & Gregg helping Chris Eubank so much and not helping the other contestants? He cannot cook"
