BAKE Off viewers were horrified last night as Freya dropped her delicate tuile on the floor only to cook it and serve it to the judges.
The baked wafer adorned the top of Freya’s disappointing sticky toffee pudding, which was panned by Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith.
While attempting to put it in the oven, Freya’s tuile fell to the floor. Wasting no time she carefully scooped it up and continued as if the error hadn’t happened, raising eyebrows among her co-stars.
One viewer wrote on Twitter: “I like Freya, but I’m surprised that she was allowed to pick her bake up off the floor and put it back in the oven. Not very hygienic.”
Another posted: “Freya. You cannot serve Paul and Prue floor pudding.”
A third said: “OMG Freya’s floor-tuile! I’m screaming lmao.”
Viewers felt the vegan baker was lucky to make it through to next week after her pudding was found to be raw in the middle.
Instead it was Maggie who was eliminated after forgetting to put flour into her bake.
The hopeful was given her marching orders by Prue and Paul after flopping in Dessert Week.
Maggie appeared to seal her fate early on in the episode, serving up inedible sticky toffee puddings after forgetting the key ingredient.
She laughed off the gaffe by saying the bakes were “gluten free”, but then struggled with her showstopper.
The food lover had to make her cake twice after being left unhappy with the first attempt – but the finished result wasn’t enough to keep her position on the show.
Meanwhile the teaser for next week’s episode of Bake Off has sparked a “fix” row – with fans accusing the series of favouring Jürgen with a German-themed week.
Jürgen, who has won Star Baker twice, was born in Germany, and some believe he will have an unfair advantage.
