Great British Bake Off viewers complain contestant is 'too good'

The Great British Bake Off

Great British Bake Off 2017 contestant Steven Carter-Bailey has been told he's too good' for the show.

Tonight's episode was all about biscuits. The contestants' signature challenge was to create identical sandwich biscuits, containing a filling that wouldn't spill out when eaten.

A devilish technical round then saw them create two different types of fortune cookie - one almond, one patterned orange.

Finally, for their demanding showstopper, the bakers had to create a playable biscuit board game at least 40 centimetres in diameter, consisting of at least eight elements.

After judging from Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith, Steven's "exquisite" showstopper clinched him the 'Star Baker' title for the second week running.

While some viewers were left in awe by Steven's impressive bakes, others weren't so happy.

Some accused him of being, err, 'too good'.

"Sorry but Steven is a professional baker. Why is he on #GBBO when it's an amateur baking competition #biscuitweek 😒" one wrote after the latest episode.

Another added: "Steven is too good it's annoying #GBBO"

And a third added (hopefully tongue in cheek): "That Steven is to good at baking, they should ban him, or cut of one hand or something to make it fair #gbbo"

Others jokingly accused Steven of somehow cheating.

"Does Steven have an hour longer than everyone else? Is he in some kind of quantum biscuit loop?? #GBBO" one quipped.

The Great British Bake Off continues next Tuesday at 8.00pm on Channel 4 with bread week.
