The new series of Channel 4’s The Great British Bake Off might only be a couple of weeks old but already fans are starting to voice their fury at certain aspects. This week it was some help judge Paul Hollywood is accused of giving one of the contestants during one of the challenges.

The amateur bakers were asked to tackle three biscuit-themed bakes this week including creating a mask made entirely out of biscuits. Macarons and Garibaldis were also on the menu but it was the performance of one of the bakers that left fans spitting crumbs says Yorkshire Live.

As part of the appeal of the show, the bakers aren’t allowed to ask for help or advice from their fellow contestants, the judges or the presenters. However, some fans have accused Irish baker, Rebs, of doing just that and have been left baffled as to why she’s made it through to week three.

@hellfiregay said: “I’m not sure how Reb’s keeps getting through. Both weeks, her bakes were not great and she keeps asking others for help.”

@nicolamai_ said: “Think I’m the only one who thinks there should be a rule on them helping each other. Maybe I want to watch the world burn”

@iamdevonrose said: “Helping each other shouldn’t be allowed, controversial I know”

@igwiggles said: “I don’t think you should be able to demand help from your fellow contestants over and over”

@vikkipotts said: “How many times does Rebs have to ask for help and put up a rushed bake before she goes then”

@lilly44 said: “I’m sorry but I just can’t warm to Rebs. She orders everyone in the tent to help her, no please or thank you, sorry, who do you think you are? Nah. Sorry. She’s got mean girl from high school vibes about her.”

@putasingonit said: “The way these all help each other in the tent is cute but the reason I could never be a contestant. It’s a competition — sort your own mess out Rebs!”

But others said they were happy to see the bakers giving each other a hand.

@rhithesmeghead: “Even though it’s a competition, I absolutely love that there’s always a good camaraderie in the tent between them all”

@dangriffiths18 added: “so so lovely when they help each other out. such a wholesome show”

And elsewhere, viewers criticised Paul Hollywood for ‘devaluing’ his handshakes, saying it was a ‘bit early’ for not one, but TWO handshakes in the very first challenge of week two.

@timgalsworthy said: “A Paul Hollywood handshake in week 2?! It’s more devalued than the British Pound these days!”

@freaksandgigs said: “HOLLYWOOD HANDSHAKE POW POW POW Still would have given it to Sandro tbh”

@luvfionaapple said: “handshake on week 2 ? bit early isn’t it ?”

@kentoccfc said: “The Hollywood Handshake has lost all meaning. Handing them out in week two, old Paul would NEVER have done it”

@marcusstarrftw said: “I feel like the Hollywood Handshake has lost a lot of its value these days”

@grace_is_sugoi said: “Remember when we wouldn’t get handshakes until at least a couple of months in.”

@azzychill said: “Hollywood handing these handshakes out like skittles”

@davidb1996 said: “The Hollywood Handshake used to be like getting an Oscar, but is now more equivalent to a TV Quick Award

@Rachmc98 said: “Two handshakes on the first challenge? Pauls being very generous this season (so far)”

SPOILERS: At the end of the episode, Rebs survived by the skin of her teeth and it was Maisal who was shown the door.
